The Drop Pendant from Original BTC is a classic British design utilising traditional methods of manufacture and traditional materials. A breath-taking statement in any style of room, this iconic chandelier comprises a cluster of perfect bone china shades each attached to a matching bone china ceiling rose via 150 cm of braided cotton flex. It’s like having someone beautiful and famous in the room – your eyes keep drifting over to it.
Original BTC was established in 1990 by the talented Peter Bowles. His lighting designs are relaxed and familiar – inspired by old-style factory fittings, toys from his childhood and iconic 40s designs. Original BTC is British all the way through and has three factories, each keeping a different side of traditional British manufacturing alive. In Birmingham, all of their metal components are made; in Stoke on Trent a kiln rages at 1240 Celcius to make flawlessly translucent bone china; and the whole lot is assembled in Oxford. What’s more - the company exports 70% of all its lights and lamps. Who says British manufacturing industry is dead?
Original BTC’s products can be seen at The Design Centre in London, Gordon Ramsey’s Maze and the amazing Merci store in Paris.
