          Chimera Watts: 
Sang Pil Bae works with mechanical precision with sober aesthetic design. His lamps are
functional, adaptable and durable. He works with metal such as copper, brass and stainless steel.
• Collections of industrial lamps range from works of nameless machinists to wellknown designers. Each piece passes a restoration process to preserve its original form
and functionality.
• Reconstructions are like the imaginary monster Chimera. The lamps and objects are
made of vintage materials of different industries. They are unique single pieces.
• Creations are lamps designed and fabricated in small series.
