Sen Lamp by Miwako Tanahashi

Home > Winners > #134757


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Sen

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lamp

INSPIRATION:
SEN is inspired by the "Chasen" used in the Japanese tea ceremony. I focused on the beautiful form of the traditional utensil, which is functional and lean, yet gives a sense of attachment. By reconstructing traditional tea utensils with different materials and modern lines, i propose lighting with new added value.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
SEN is a lamp that can be placed and enjoyed like a flower or an object in a place where you can relax away from the overly bright modern life. It is a lamp that you can feel attached to, like an object with high added value. By wrapping the central glass bulb with two parts at different angles, light and shadow are softened, giving a sense of depth. The gradation of colors softens the form of the metal outer shell. The color gradation changes depending on the brightness and viewing angle.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
It is a cordless lamp with LEDs and batteries built into the body, and can be turned on and off with a remote control. You can take it anywhere you like, such as bedside, table, or outdoors, and create a relaxing space there.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The design was started in Japan in the summer of 2020, and a prototype was made in 2021.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The shape is made by inserting 94 linear parts cut out of a 0.8mm thick stainless steel plate with a width of 1mm into two rings with small holes drilled in each. The highly advanced laser cutting technology enables us to make small and thin parts in precise sizes. The gradation of colors in stainless steel is also a special technique.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Stainless steel Width 115mm Depth 115mm Height 176mm

TAGS:
Lighting, table lamps, cordless lamps, battery lamps

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I wanted to create a light that could be enjoyed by touching and looking at, so it was important that it be portable, cordless, and palm-sized. By using stainless steel, I was able to keep the shape and simplicity of the product even though the parts are thin and do not lose their shape when touched.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge was to cut the stainless steel precisely and place it evenly to express the delicate and beautiful form.
