About Clar

Barbara Etter

Clar is a London based lighting design company led by product designer Barbara Etter. With love for a quiet, minimalistic aesthetic she strives to create lighting objects that comfort us with their calm simplicity and elegance.
"My design journey starts in play - working directly with the material and with little planning. It is a conversation with the material's properties: with fragility and stiffness, softness and tension, with texture and translucency - nudging at boundaries and finding compromise. The final character of an object is born of this thoughtful investigation and led by regard to function, intuitiveness, familiarity and the environment"
