Dream Table Lamp by MrSmith Studio

Home > Winners > #131587


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Dream

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table Lamp

INSPIRATION:
Concrete as a material is always associated in the collective imagination with something hard, cold and heavy. In MrSmith Studio we believe that the role of the designer should be also to break the schemes and subvert the collective imagination, suggesting new interpretations. This is why we modeled concrete to give it a soft, enveloping, light and warm shape.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A dream, a lamp thought during the exploration with concrete sparked by the CONCRETAmente objects collection. An oxymoron comes to life where a pillow made in concrete cuddles a globe of light, creating a cocoon atmosphere.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The project of Dream started with a deep research on concrete moulding techniques. We've made several trials for defining the best material both for the mould, the concrete and the procedure. The final result is a soft looking pillow, with a uniform fine grain an no bubbles visible.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Development of the project took 6 months and has been entirely don in MrSmith Studio

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Through an innovative molding method and a particular type of very fine-grained concrete, we were able to obtain a unique shape that breaks the shemes and the usual stiffness of concrete. The diffuser is obtained from a blown glass globe, handmade by the best glass masters of Venice.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
24 x 24 h14 cm 3,5 kg G9 dimmerable bulb 220V

TAGS:
Tablelamp, lamp, design, soft, hard, concrete, glass, light

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Starting from a deep research on small table lamps, we focused then on understanding which could be the right kind of light source. Because the aim of this product is not to be a reading lamp, but to be an ambient lamp, the diffused light is the right choice. What consumers are looking for in this category, is something that can warm up the environment. So concrete had to disconnect from the cold feeling that usually creates, and light had to be warm and dimmerable.

CHALLENGE:
We were looking for a clever way of using concrete as main material for a table lamp. Our aim was to disconnect from the cold and solid sensation received from concrete.
