We do not require an adult signature for deliveries, but please note that the decision to leave your package without a signature is at the discretion of the delivery person. If you want an item left at your doorstep, the best thing to do is leave a note on your door asking the driver to leave your package with "No Signature Required."

Wood Crating Packaging Service

At Luminaire, larger or more fragile items, such as certain chairs and lighting, are protected in wood crating.

The wood crating at the top of the item's box will be secured with screws, instead of nails, to make access to the box and removal of the item easier.

Upon receiving a crated item, use a Phillips-head ("crosshead") screwdriver to unscrew and remove the wood from the top of the box. Then, simply open the box and pull the item out.

Hybrid Cutlery

The poetic, minimal work of Maarten Van Severn is characterized by carefully reduced forms, well thought out design and an acute sensitivity to materiality. On a constant search for ways to remove superfluous elements from objects, the designer has achieved a cutlery set that is the absolute synthesis of function, design and craft. Limited to a series of 999 pieces, the three piece Hybrid Cutlery set combines advanced materials and production methods with traditional, ancient techniques to arrive at a truly magnificent object. Through analyzing hundreds of pieces of cutlery from various times and cultures, Van Severn determined the absolute essential forms needed to be functionally sound. His final project before his untimely death, Hybrid Cutlery is a harmonious junction of all of the designers principles in one dynamic product.
  • For the spooon, van Severen chose a sculptural and minimal shape made in lacquered wood
  • To create these spoons, When Objects Work found a workshop in a small Japanese village capable of creating the high-quality Urushi lacquer that van Severen intended
  • Each spoon receives over 65 layers of hand-painted lacquer
  • For the fork, van Severen chose the incredibly lightweight material titanium, a material which also conducts temperature
  • For the knife, he chose Zirconium ceramic, a material used because of its extreme hardness
  • The three piece set is available with a mint green spoon
  • Produced in a numbered and limited edition of 999 sets - the green spoon set is the last available
  • Enclosed in a lacquered wood box for storage
