Nocturne is based on the idea that the best form always follows function.
Nocturne Workshop lamps are designed with a clean, minimal aesthetic in mind, but are nevertheless luxurious in colour, finish and design. The materials used such as brass, sustainably-sourced hard-woods and aluminium are used to construct lamps to the highest level of craftsmanship designed to last and age beautifully over time.
Nocturne was established by Simon Day in 2011 drawing design inspiration from architecture, workshop machinery and the 20th-century design sensibilities of companies and designers such as Kandya, Stag and PEL, Ernest Race, Anni Albers, Frank Guille, Eileen Gray and Jean Prouve.
From its workshop in Manchester, Simon leads a small team of specialist craftspeople making their lamps to order. They can adapt their designs to work with your home or interior project. Please get in touch if you would like to commission the workshop to design and make bespoke feature lighting, mirrors and furniture for you.
