The idea behind the project is to create a series of lamps in which the same elements can perform several different functions for different locations in the home. By adding few elements, the lamp can be changed from a hanging lamp over the dining table into a table lamp on a desk. It can also be a floor lamp in the living room.
The starting point of the lamp is a design philosophy. Design should be created as an interaction between hand and mind, to the final product to fit both body and soul.
The shape of the luminaire arose through a process. In an attempt to not think, and instead let the hand work. Coincidences and natural forces has been crucial to the final shape. A design process where the disclosure creates mold and product. The lamp was shaped in a primitive process where a stick was pressed into the soft display tube. The result was a light fixture that naturally embraces the stick that remain and act as support.
