Tano Desk Lamp by Lukas Avenas

Home > Winners > #40487


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tano

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desk Lamp

INSPIRATION:
We had a task to quickly create interesting lamps out of paper and I believe this task got me on the right tracks of thinking. One may find some similarities with French press coffee maker or spyglass, but the initial sketch was just two big cylinders inside of each other as the basic principle of light manipulation.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Telescopic principle allows user to change intensity and direction of the light as well as the shape of the lamp itself. Ability to change the intensity of the light is useful when user changes activities, for example: user is drawing or reading and then decides to work on a computer - thus requiring less direct light. One can also create an ambient lighting by changing lights direction and pointing it to the wall or ceiling. The lamp uses very simple principles and consists of simple shapes, which allows it to melt into most work environments.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Person uses part which emits light and pushes or pulls it to change intensity of the light or turns to change direction of the light. Movement is very simple and intuitive. This transformation is achieved without sacrificing aesthetics.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Started in October 2013, finished in first week of 2014, Vilnius Lithuania. Was exhibited in Vilnius Academy of arts, later in "Litexpo" furniture exhibition and "Design week" events.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Aluminium, warm colored LED lights, soft cloth between cylinders, red wire.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Lamp is 450 x 440 x 130 mm big. If optimized for production, it would be possible to pack it into a box, the size of 441 x 131 x 60 mm.

TAGS:
tube, cylinder, desk, black, minimal

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I wanted to find out what kind of lamps are the most important for various people. I made some online surveys, asked people around me, looked at my own daily routine and went to a lot of design/ interior shops and exhibitions. I figured out that most people do not own floor lamps, lamps mounted on walls are also quite rare. In conclusion most people rely on ceiling lamps for general activities and desk lamps for anything that requires more concentration. I also put a lot of effort to create a way to manipulate light differently. I made a lot of models out of paper and various other materials to understand how light interacts with those materials and shapes. I did some research about potential users of this lamp as well. I looked at a lot of office and workplace interiors, objects, colors and shapes that serious, hardworking people prefer. I realized that my lamp must melt into workplace environment, not distract and look good in larger quantities, because bigger offices may use many lamps.

CHALLENGE:
It was hard to find tubes of the correct size. They are usually sold in very big quantities. Also there is a soft cloth between the tubes and I had to go through a lot of cloths to find one which works best, because it has to be correct thickness and allow tubes to slide easily. In the development phase, I had difficulties deciding how to connect bigger tube to the rod. The final decision came very late and unexpectedly while I was looking for materials in the supermarket.
