The Inspiration:

Dr Alexander Fleming changed the face of medical treatment as we know it today. His discoveries led to him winning the 1945 Nobel Prize; but perhaps more meaningfully, they allowed us to effectively and painlessly treat many bacterial infections that previously led to death. It could be argued that there are few scientists that have saved more lives than Fleming; with his remarkable discovery. This lamp was the first in the Apothecary Collection, and sparked the collection itself. 

It was originally designed to a be one level, ‘L’ shaped piece; but in the same way as Fleming’s work on ‘Staphylococcus aureus’, led to important future studies; collaborations with other researchers; and a well-known chain of events that culminated in the availability of antibiotics; our work on this lamp led to the (originally discarded), idea for the two level approach. 

When naming the piece it seemed beautifully appropriate to name it for a scientist who changed the face of medicine as we know it today, with a course of events almost as unplanned. 

Later, when designing other pieces, we first thought of notable physicians and researchers who made significant contributions to the field of medical science and designed pieces which illustrated aspects of who they are or were, and thus, The Apothecary Collection was born.
