Martin Standing lamp by Santiago Bautista

Home > Winners > #58566


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Martin

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Standing lamp

INSPIRATION:
Technology is quickly changing every aspect of our life. New fabrication techniques are opening the possibility to develop very complex geometries. This process is however generating a catalogue of random forms that belong more to the realm of publicity and marketing than to the world of design. As a reaction to this, a retro trend has emerged strongly, demanding designers to reconnect with the qualities of the design modernism. The idea behind Martin was to use the latest fabrication technology to bring back these values. To create an object that looks fresh and contemporary but at the same time feels familiar in any space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The idea behind Martin is very simple; One single steel tube is bent using the latest CNC technology to create the main body of the lamp. This tube connects to an oversized aluminum head through a brass swiveled joint which allows the reader to adjust its angle. The height of the lamp has been optimized to reduce glare and the incorporation of a small E14 bulb generates a deep and directed light source. Each lamp is coated with an ultra-matte soft touch lacquer which gives the product a ceramic appearance and a warm touch.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Martin was designed to be mainly a reading lamp. The height of its head as well as the position of the light bulb, have been optimized to create a targeted light source and avoid glare while reading in a standard armchair. The adjustable swiveled joint, allows the user to regulate the angle of its head to adapt to the different reading scenarios. Martin can be used as well as a bedside lamp or act as a table lamp when placed next to a desk.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project start: March 2016 Product launch: November 2016 Production: Ongoing

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
One single steel tube is bent using the latest CNC technology. This allows us to follow the exact angles of the 3D model. A flat disc of aluminium is spun against a steel mold to create the lamp head. These two parts are then finished with an ultra matte powder coating and connected through a brass swiveled joint which allows the user to adjust the angle of the head. A textile braided electrical cable is manually inserted through the tube to complete the assembly of Martin.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
400 mm x 400 mm x 1350 mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In the early phases of this project, several prototypes were made by 3D printing the bends of the lamp with the exact angles as in the digital model and then connecting them with straight sections of tube. Once the desired size and proportions were achieved, a metal workshop was approached to develop a final prototype from a single tube.

CHALLENGE:
Despite the simplicity of the final product, the tube bending process was more challenging than anticipated. The three-dimensional bends of the tube, made it very difficult to manufacture it with conventional methods. After a meeting with the manufacturer and a revision of the design, it was decided that the best way to develop this product was through the use of a CNC bending tool. Loaded with a digital model, this tool was able to precisely replicate the specified angles and the production was finally set up.

CLIENT/STUDIO/BRAND DETAILS
NAME:
Bau Design

PROFILE:
Bau Design is a Danish design studio established in 2016 by Spanish architect Santiago Bautista. Bau design appears in a climate of extreme consumerism where big brands are inviting the customers to buy new products every season. As a result, the quality of the products is dropping significantly to make them cheaper and less durable, promoting the idea of disposable products. Bau Design aims to design, produce and sell beautiful and durable products manufactured under fair labor conditions and market them at a price which aligns with the intrinsic value of the object.
