Mahogany, blackened copper, cotton cord and linen shade. It would seem that a lamp is a perfect way to add some sculptural form to a room. Unfortunately most lamps are anti-sculpture. So, following the advise of a professor that told me, "If you can't find the book you need, then write it." we designed and built the Arden Lamp. Inspired by the Bridgehampton sculptor, Arden Scott, we designed this lamp to add simple graceful lines to the room. The linen shade is standard, but we do have some thoughts on that for the future.
The name Hatched comes from one nervy night when Brandon and Debra chose to launch a collaboration in furniture design. The two make for an incredible team; both scrappy, from blue collar families, but refined with a love of art, music and design. From a family of designers, architects, artists and builders, Brandon applies his love for both the contemporary and the classic to designing and building furniture. Debra brings her experience and education in contemporary art to the design of each piece. Educated at Sotheby's in London, she is currently the Director of an established New York art gallery. New York City is the birthplace and inspiration for Hatched designs. The pace, the hub-bub, the frenetic go-go of the city coincided with many new beginnings for the couple and consequently led to a desire for a pinch of quiet, a respite, a place to call home. They draw inspiration from the sentiment of home and a desire to carve out quiet hamlets from urban life, designing furniture that is beautiful, simple and affable. Beginning from Mid-century design's Minimalist sophistication, Hatched tilts, bends and pops to communicate not so much the stainless-steel jet of progress but rather a place in which to reflect and or play. It is this simple equation of taking contemporary design and building it with a favorite well honed chisel, that you come to affable sophistication. Bench made isn't just an adherence to traditional craftsmanship and standards, or a new marketing flavor; For us, it is the other half of the aesthetic.
