STRIKE lamp09. Feb2015

Following what Konstantin Grcic thinks about how we should approach the concept of the lamp in these days: "We must completely rethink the lamp as an object. Anyone simply inserting new energy saving bulbs into old fittings is missing a unique opportunity. We now need a new typology of light.", Chudy and Grase have investigated alternative materials to rethink the lamp as an object.

Instead of designing a shade for the light source they shaped the light itself. The lamp collection ’Strike’ is made with optical fibers capable of directing light, resulting in a series of minimalistic light sculptures that offer a new and different way of experiencing light. The lamp is reduced down to its core.

STRIKE lamp has been displayed during november at Normann Copenhagen Flagship Store and shown at the Stockholm Furniture Fair last week.
