Mr Cooper is a new pendant light designed by Melbourne-based Kate Stokes. It is the latest piece designed by Stokes for her design studio, Coco Flip. The piece was launched as part of the Fringe Furniture exhibition, on show at the Abbotsford Convent until 8 October.
Inspired by the tin can telephone, or lovers’ telephone, the spun copper pendant pays tribute to a time gone by, celebrating an era of experimentation and invention.
The spun copper pendants are designed to be hung in a cluster. The swage lines at the bottom of the pendant reference the ridges of a tin can, while also adding rigidity and detail to the light’s form.
