Little Zig Table Lamp by Eve Fineman + Henri Preiss

Home > Winners > #54112


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Little Zig

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table Lamp

INSPIRATION:
Little Zig refers to the Ziggurat formation of the shade, a shape that alludes to objects both ancient and futuristic. The design of this piece was inspired by a recurring visual element in the paintings of one of the collaborators, whose work also explores traces of time from past to present to future. The challenge was to select a visual element from a single painting, and transform it into a functional, 3D object. A table-top lamp emerged as the object of choice, where the glowing shade appears to have landed like an unknown craft onto the earthy, concrete base. It is a merging of new and old, earth and sky.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Little Zig light fixture is the second piece in an ongoing collaboration between a furniture designer and a visual artist. This series represents the translation of two-dimensional imagery into a three-dimensional object. Contrasting the materiality of glowing acrylic and tactile concrete, this table-top lamp is produced using digital fabrication technology and mold-making for minimal waste and straightforward manufacturing.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This piece is very easy to use. It consists of 2 components: the shade and the base, in which the shade simply lifts off the base for easy bulb accessibility. Its structure provides maximum stability, making it a piece that will not be easily damaged and cannot tip over. It has a sliding dimmer switch on the cord for user control over its overall brightness.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The piece was designed and the produced in Chicago, IL in 2016. It was a top 10 finalist in the 'Established' category in the L A M P competition in Vancouver, Canada, and was exhibited there in October of 2016. It was also exhibited along with the Zig lamp, first in the series, at the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago, IL as part of the Chicago Furniture Designers Association.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The piece was produced using CAD drawings and a laser cutter to produce the acrylic shade, and a mold to cast the concrete. These processes allow for simple, no-waste production and can easily be scaled-up for manufacturing.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
9.5"H x 9"W x 9"D. The shade rests on the base with no additional attachments, allowing for easy access to the LED bulb. The LED is a dimmable, 2700K multidirectional bulb, which provides a warm white glow. Rubber feet are an inverted form of the base, and provide space for the cord as well as scratch-proof cushioning.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research for this piece involved prototyping, material experimentation, and form editing, in order to produce a piece that is distilled down to only its essential elements. The intent was to create a prototype that can be scaled up for manufacture, using streamlined fabrication processes and producing minimal waste.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest creative challenge for this piece involved taking an element of a 2-dimensional painting, and translating it into a functional, 3-dimensional object. We were interested in concepts from the painting we chose, such as ancient/future, earth/cosmos, and we had to find ways to realize those ideas in a functional object. We achieved this with a thorough exploration of forms and materials. Our second challenge involved designing the geometries of the shade and the base so that they could be manufactured with minimal waste.
