Newburyport Lighting congratulates Hubbardton Forge for its latest Pinnacle award

NewburyportLighting_HubForgeWinnersYou know you’ve picked a winner for your store when it is repeatedly recognized for excellence and creativity by the design industry. And that’s exactly why Hubbardton Forge lighting products enjoy such a large presence at the Newburyport Lighting Company. This past week, HF’s Cavaletti collection was honored as the recipient of the 2013 ASFD Pinnacle Award for Design Achievement in the lighting category. This marks the ninth time the company has won the Pinnacle award. (The Pinnacle Awards were created in April 1995 by the American Society of Furniture Designers to promote design quality and encourage the recognition of designers within the retail home furnishings industry.)

The Cavaletti lighting collection features a graphic composition of dynamically tapered, forged elements. Its design begins with a piece of square steel barstock. One end is heated in the forge, and a taper is drawn from the middle of the piece. The other end is then heated, and before tapering it is turned 90 degrees, creating a dynamic new shape. Once welded, the lamp assembly is washed in a closed-loop, bio-remediation system, and finished with a state-of-the-art powder coating process, with no VOCs, thus minimizing environmental impacts.

A simple rectangular fabric shade enhances the clean lines of this family, which includes a pendant, table and floor lamps, and an ADA compliant wall sconce. The Cavaletti collection is offered in a choice of finishes and shades.
