For the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne 2015 we created several light installations and sculptures for the Musée de la Mine in St. Etienne, to show how light can be controlled to create beautiful patterns that tell us the story of light, colours, shadows and reflection.
LED technology has been a revolution for the light industry. A very popular, mass produced and cheap product is the LED strip, most often seen hidden away behind panels or underneath sufaces. We wanted to do something different with it, showing that there are other ways to use such a great product.
The Dotted Lamp uses the LED strip to show that it can be transformed into a delightful, simple and elegant lamp. In this case the design was inspired by the colourful an freely floating, dreamy jellyfish, a marvel of nature.
Next to being light and colourful in it’s design, it is made to be a ‘plug ’n play’ lamp that uses a simple 3D printed frame in which you can simply click the LED strip to make it work.
