Inkster Maken Limestone Lights

While we love this simple light and its punchy red cord, all of the Inkster Maken designs can be customized or bespoke developed.

Victoria, Australia-based Hugh Altschwager is passionate about the outdoors and handmade items. For Inkster Maken, he combined his two loves into a new range of limestone lights. According to Altschwager, using limestone in lighting provides a “warm, earthly, glow not commonly found in other modern lighting fixtures.” We are fans of these tactile, sturdy lamps and the sustainable production methods behind them.
