The tale of this joint venture starts with Lumil, the successful lighting brand launched by Luke in 2016. With Christian coming on board in 2020, the brothers decided to rebrand the business, incorporating the new partnership and their vision for an experimental lighting studio. And so, South Drawn was born. With a portfolio specialising in high-end lighting, Luke’s role in the business is that of Design Director. His exploratory approach to materials is heavily influenced by nature and the creative exploitation of found forms or textures within the natural landscape.
The duo is well balanced as Christian heads up the production and logistics, working alongside the local artisans and manufacturers who help to create South Drawn’s unique product range. His expertise is best appreciated when observing his approach to rid the chaff and streamline the assembly of each piece.
