Reverse Pickup Table Lamp by ADD Architectural Studio

Home > Winners > #58655


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Reverse Pickup

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Table Lamp

INSPIRATION:
The design was inspired from the concept of transmission of sound as the vinyl rotates on the all time classic Pickup.The vinyl was replaced by the translucent marble discus which was placed standing,thus producing a reverse pickup table lamp.The concept becomes complete with the bronze arcs which in combination with the discus's final position depict the archetype of the Pickup needle placed upon a vinyl.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The uniqueness lies into the featuring of an elegant discus consisting of translucent marble.As the discus rotates along the base it gradually lights up.The form of the two bronze arcs emanates from the desire to enclose the discus and accentuate the notion of movement and the play between light and shadow.Three different discuses,each made from a different colored marble were chosen to match the users' aesthetics and mood.As the mood changes,all you need to do is "play" your favorite discus.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The further the discus rotates by the user from the starting point,the more it gets illuminated.The discus can be detached and replaced with another colored discus simply by pulling it off the guide.The necessary dimmer and adapter are placed on the wire,allowing a slim base.A movement sensor placed on the guide provides the dimmer with a wire signal,resulting in the dimming process.The package includes all three discus colors.Each discus can be de-assembled for the LED tape to be changed.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started with an abstract sketch in Athens in January 2017 and was completed in early May 2017 as a concept design.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The discus consists of two pieces of translucent marble each 3 mm thick which are held apart from each other by a circular wreath featuring a cross section similar to a bike rim.In the 15 mm interval between the marbles a LED tape is glued upon the internal surface of the wreath.The LED tape is powered through the wreath contact with a bronze guide spanning the base length which ensures the rotation course of the discus.The bronze arcs are welded on the rectangular bronze base.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Discus's dimensions: 150mm radius Table lamp's dimensions: width 95mm x length 700mm x height 370mm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Our obsession with elegant and slim design through the paradox use heavy and precious materials emanates from our architectural background.Our influences span through architects such as Mies Van der Rohe, Tadao Ando, Rem Koolhaas etc.

CHALLENGE:
The greatest design challenge was the giving birth to an "eternal" and timeless piece of furniture through the use of priceless materials while at the same time making use of a post-modern and pop concept such as the pickup.Our preoccupation was to create a "Less is more" and featherweight kind of design despite the use of heavy and expensive materials.
