Chartres Ceiling Lamp by André Teoman

Home > Winners > #36482


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Chartres

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Ceiling Lamp

INSPIRATION:
What inspired me is what inspires everyone, our hobbies. My interest in circus, theater, and movies, makes me want to tell a story in each product, picking up on shocking concepts and to turn them into a symbolization of distinctive taste and humor.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Inspired in the technique used in antique stained glass motifs of cathedrals, Chartres breaks up the relation between the technique and religious motifs. With funny and ironic representations of a circle of life on earth in six chapters. Chartres creates a magical environment in the space that it occupies and with 6 different glass colors it re-creates how lighting should make you fell. More than just illuminate your needs, it fulfills the emotional aspect of your visual senses.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Chartres is adaptable in distance to the ceiling and in inclination to the floor, so you can easily adapt the light direction to any kind of interior project. The version with a dimmer allows you to control the percentage of light you want it to present. It works beautifully with lights on and the lights off, working as a light when turned on and a piece of art when turned off.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project started on May of this year, when I started my solo career. I've been studying the art of the stained glass with some local craftsman, and trying to understand how we could make it modernly appealing in a product design. Chartres came to life after a lot of technical studies and mesmerizing experiences with the magic of the stained glass effect throw light.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Six stained glass slices and a circle, that are attached to a darken oak wood structure with a grid and details in brass. All the process is handmade so it gives sustainability to Northern Portuguese craftsman, a part of Portugal very affected by the economic crisis.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
DIMENSIONS 1650mm x 1650mm x 260mm WEIGHT Aprox 40kg 88,18lbs

TAGS:
Stained Glass Lamp, Storytelling, Modern Ceiling Lamp, Hand Made Product, Multi Color Lamp, Directional Ceiling Lamp, Tradition

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I started with research about the handmade stained glass technique. The objective was to increase the work flow of some small companies. I was in love with the effect that these colors made when exposed to light. So I started to break up the relation that exists between the religion and the technique, giving it a modern visual approach and maintaining the storytelling. I focused the story around Man history instead of God. Finally I combined this technique with a daily used home product.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part was to combine the modern storytelling with the traditional technique that has lots of constraints. First of all creating the visual modern history of man in a reduced number of "chapters" was a challenge to begin with. Which moments should I focus on? I was constantly talking with the craftsman so I could understand what would be possible and which constrains we could change, turning the impossible into possible.
