The Japanese ideology of Wabi-Sabi embraces the beauty of the imperfect and the transient grace of ever-changing nature. In Wabi-Sabi, true beauty's luster grows with time and use. Ada Corten was designed in pursuit of this ideal. This indoor/outdoor sconce will continue to change in response to its environment.
Made of Corten, also known as weathering steel, Ada Corten is specifically designed to be used in exterior applications. Corten's unique property is that its degradation and rust form a protective coating that resists further oxidation.
The honest simplicity of the material complements the formal simplicity of our Ada Sconce, creating a timeless and humble fixture that adds a touch of warmth and utility to any space. Though designed for exterior use, Ada Corten comes pre-weathered with a lacquer finish suitable for interior applications as well.
