Workstead’s Hieroglyph Lighting Collection

View all 24 Photos

Striking lighting designs inspired by hieroglyphs and the De Stijl movement.

NYC-based multidisciplinary design studio Workstead has an extensive and varied portfolio with projects that range from product, lighting, and furniture design to interior finishes, marketing, and creative direction. Their Hieroglyph lighting collection highlights the studio’s imaginative approach to design. The line references both the figurative language that inspired its name and the De Stijl movement’s essential abstract forms. Following the footsteps of their Lodge line, the Hieroglyph lighting range features nested wooden cylinders. Here, nine bulbs illuminate the ends of the cylinders, creating a striking composition.

The line includes both a pendant and a sconce design. While the former comes with a cloth-covered cord or a metal rod, the latter features a backplate that easily attaches to a wall. The Hieroglyph pendant comes in three standard heights, but Workstead also offers customers the option to order a custom height. Made in the USA, the Hieroglyph collection is available in various colors and finishes. You can choose between natural oak and oxidized oak finishes for the wooden cylinders or select between the painted options in white, yellow, or gray. As for the metal rods, finishes range from golden brass to darker bronze and silvery nickel. Finally, the studio can make the lighting suitable for damp areas, upon request. Photographs© Workstead.
