WELCOME TO LEGATO.
H A N D M A D E & L O C A L
Legato creates original lighting that has been handcrafted by artisan in London.
Showcasing the natural, textured, flowing forms found in the world around us in unique and beautiful ways, each Legato lamp takes approximately six to eight weeks to make.
To achieve the unique shapes of the Legato lamp, our creative process involves hand painting cast composite into identical moulds, which allows for their intricate finish.
Once the structure of the lamp is formed, each lamp receives its decorative finishes at our studio in South London, bringing to life the unique textures, shapes and shadows synonymous with Legato, making every lamp a piece of art within itself.

Finding inspiration in nature is a tale old as time, but it's a good one. Our lamps capture nature in a sculptural way that celebrates its unique form and movement.
The link between us and nature has, for millennia past, promoted health, wellbeing and created calmness throughout our lives and our homes. Lighting has a similar effect and has the capability to define the atmosphere and provide the finishing touch within an interior space.
Adding a soft, warm light to our Legato lamps will enhance the shapes and shadows across the bases, further adding to the magic of the lamp.
We offer bespoke options across our full collection through:
Lamp base colour
Lamp holder and chains
Flexes, plugs and switches
International plug requirements
Please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements

Legato Founder, Matilda came to lighting in a slightly unusual way. Having worked at House & Garden and The World of Interiors magazines for years, she took a brief hiatus from the industry before returning to work at TAT London in 2021.
A chance encounter with ceramics shortly after saw Matilda learning all she could about the craft and so began the initial concepts of our first four designs. Each Legato design is first created from clay before being adapted to cast composite. Clay offers movement, undulation and imperfection, all things that thrive in nature and what we look to imitate.
Legato introduces our first collection of lamps: Patience, Prudence, Laetitia and Brimble.
