New at 2Modern: John Beck Paper & Steel

Furniture & Lighting

Light-One-Black“Made by hand and boiled down to pure necessity and absolute truth, with nowhere to hide,” is how John Beck Paper and Steel describes its artfully industrial range of products. And the Edwardsville, Illinois, design studiowhich 2Modern is pleased to welcome into its brand familymeans it. Raw steelhand crafted and American-madeis central to the company’s product range, expressed in exceedingly simple forms and subtle, unexpected infusions of ornamentation.

Hot rolled steel, wire mesh and Edison style bulb give the Light One Pendant its moody, burnished panache; while the SGT Shotgun Table acquires its delicate surface pattern from, of all things, impressions made by the firing of a 20 gauge shotgun. Who would have guessed that the dirty business of “welded, sanded, polished, destroyed, worked and reworked” steel could result in anything this visually pure and esthetically clean?
