The Scantling Wall Light extends Marset's lighting range that contrasts cool metal with warm wood. It's an untraditional pairing yet it's named with an allusion to a traditional unit of measurement for cutting wood. London designer Mathias Hahn has fashioned a clean-lined geometric take on lighting, marked by functional craftsmanship. Finely calibrated, the hinged wooden arm permits the shade to be fully adjustable without springs or counterweights.
- Shade: 7.7" h x 3.7" dia (19.5x9.5cm)
- Base: 5.3" (13.5cm)
- Overall: 10.6" (26.8cm)

“Marset is more than lamps: We take care of light in its different nuances and effects, to create atmospheres with character, helping to improve people’s quality of life,” declares the Barcelona-based company. Marset’s dual preoccupation with both crisp contemporary design and the more elusive ambiance of lighting has firmly fixed the firm on the design world’s cutting-edge radar. A series of attention-grabbing and innovative fixtures account for the recent revitalization of the brand, though Marset has actually been around since the 1940s.
A family business, Marset was originally a foundry, not a lighting company. It segued into lighting design when Francisco Marset formally established Marset Illuminacion in 1965. Decades devoted to metalwork easily translated to the contemporary lighting industry, with a dexterity of materials available to create unexpected, atmospheric lighting effects. Not to mention the influence of its Barcelona home, a city renowned for architecture, design and visual inspiration.
