LIQUID COLOUR KÜKEN LAMP << previous | next >>

This series celebrates colour and its uniqueness when combined with transparent materials like resin, in this case with bakelite - an early plastic developed in New York in 1907.

 

Lamps (found in the factories of former East Germany) built in the Sixties for heating newborn chicks in the coop, are transformed into elegant and simple contemporary lighting. Made of Bakelite, the lamp is covered with coloured resin and held by a handcrafted wooden structure. The shape of the wooden frame is a hexagram and each side has a 30 degree angle. This is the work of fine carpentry, being something difficult to do.

 

 

 

The edition is limited, colours can be made on request.
