Jeeves Bowler Hat Pendant by Jake Phipps

A light with the touch of the surreal…what could be better?

Jake Phipps graduated from John Makepeace’s furniture design school, Parnham College in 1999 & began designing & making one-off pieces to commission. In 2005 he set up his own design studio in London, concentrating on designing his own pieces for larger scale production. The Jeeves pendant light was designed as a playful take on lighting with a real sense of cultural identity. The hat is an object that often associates it’s wearer with a particular society, heritage or race. The Bowler is a classic British cultural icon reflecting a bygone era of imperialism, class divide and eccentricity.
