Bob Lamp Lamp by Mark Talbot & Youngjin Yoon

Home > Winners > #51621


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bob Lamp

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lamp

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration comes from the bold and highly expressive forms of the Italian Memphis group. Postmodern garishness is re-imagined through the authentic re-investment in 'real' materials, recycled and remaindered goods.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Made from hand cast concrete with recycled glass aggregates its weight, size and minimal form allows it to interchange between a small table lamp heavy enough to withstand an accidental bump or tug on its cord and a pendant fixture light enough to be hung from the ceiling. When used as a table lamp the wavy base is a series of legs allowing for the cord to pass between, the gold half-round bulb does double duty as light source and lampshade. When hung from the ceiling the waves become a crown.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Simple switch mounted to the cord operation.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project was designed and executed at our studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn and exhibited at New York Now in 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Formwork is made by a 3d printed positive sanded and waxed then cast into silicone rubber. Recycled glass aggregate was added to portland cement and lathe-ground to reveal it.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
76mm diameter x 127mm to top of concrete base plus an additional 76mm height for bulb Bulb is half gold mirrored top 40W120V - included

TAGS:
Table Lamp, Pendant Lamp, Concrete, Terrazzo, Recycled Glass, Minimal

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Talbot & Yoon are interested in criticism of mass produced objects claiming that, by lacking human touch, they are morally bankrupt. Objects of the 1980's avant-garde extend this criticism through the use of garish and miss-matched materials, pop colors and all-over patterning. Realizing that this same skepticism of mass production runs through the present but has recently been addressed by the handmade, recycled and remaindered goods, we wanted to have our cake and eat it too, producing a pop/patterned but authentic object with an obviously human touch.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge that we set up for ourselves at the beginning of every project is how to design something that meets the needs, wants and constraints of living within a small Brooklyn apartment. With limited space, the objects that we design need to be compact, or modular or reconfigurable. The challenge was to reduce the design to the fewest number of integral parts without producing something that appeared minimal in the normative sense.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Talbot & Yoon, LLC

PROFILE:
Talbot & Yoon are a young design firm dedicated to creating beautiful objects, furniture and home accessories. Trained and registered as Architects in the state of New York, founders Mark Talbot and Youngjin Yoon incorporate their architectural thinking into the smaller scale objects that they design for everyday use. Mission Statement: Play is a central element of design culture, so why shouldn’t play be facilitated not just by the designated objects of games but by all design objects? Like kids building a fort using cushions from the couch or turning the rug into a racetrack; through character, variation and reconfigurability we want to provide the adult consumer with the same delight from the end product as we experience in the process of design. Talbot & Yoon believe that it if it isn’t fun, why bother? This is why we promote play as the central driver of our own productivity and maintain that while the products we sell are ‘finished’ when they leave our studio that they are never truly finished; the end user takes over by actively participating with our design objects both physically and emotionally. We imagine a world of products that people can take home and play with, products that can grow and change as peoples’ needs and desires grow and change. All of our products are designed and made by us, one object at a time.
