Light is an element that surrounds us and influences the way we perceive and feel in an environment. A lamp is a common object that is most of the time discarded during daytime and can nowadays even be activated from a phone.
For this project, I wanted to give back importance to the lamp as a sculptural and central object in a space. I aspired to reconnect the user to it through a more playful hand-operated interaction, giving the possibility to adjust the amount and direction of light, from an ambiant glare to a more directed one.
Against the idea of including a mechanism that had to be hidden or fixed in the lampshade, I decided to embrase this aspect by displaying it as a main part of the lamp, through a thread system, playing a role in the shadows created and the light diffusion.
Focus takes its full impact when it is the only light source in a room.
The linen transmit the light through its own pattern, and reveals its own weaved structure.
The threads, rings and structure play directly with the light and create shadows, giving more depth
