Faith Standing lamp by Attila Stromajer

Home > Winners > #59437


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Faith

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Standing lamp

INSPIRATION:
This lamp was inspired by the universal need of mankind to believe in something. No matter which culture we look at we will find that need to believe in ourselves, in transcendence or in a religious concept. Nowadays, we are longing more and more to hold onto something stable and eternal in our ever changing fast-paced and information-packed world. Our lamp symbolizes this need with statue-like shape from this idea. It resembles the early symbol of turning upwards.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This lamp can be used as a standing and ambiant lamp, as a reading lamp, or it can be placed on the wall too with a console. This lamp creates the ambiance for contemplation and symbolizes the significance of faith modified to suit our modern time. The diversely adjustable illuminants give many options for altering the lights expanding the mode of action from soft mood to full illumination.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The multiplied pieces symbolizes that we are all pointing towards unity. It also suggests that we build our own system of belief from our own experience. The hole inside shows that the essence of this faith is unique for everybody. We need to fill it with meaning. In the middle we find emptiness and stillness which help us reach a meditative state. The metal bottom multiplies the visual experience and shows that our faith is reflected in all our actions and that we are also reflected in it.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2015 in Hungary and finished in August 2017 in Hungary

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This lamp was made of ash wood, the bottom is stainless steel. Natural varnish was applied on the surface, which gives the structure lightness and balances the stability and rigidness of the angular forms. The natural finish, the size, the adjustable illumination and the shape of turning upwards may remind the feeling of intimateness while bringing traits of modernity and functionality to the project.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This lamp has three hidden LED circuits: outside, inside and bottom. Wiring these was a huge challenge technically. You can switch and set the LEDs separately or together and the light intensity too by a remote control. That provides extraordinary variation options for adjusting the lights, thus expanding the mode of action from soft mood lighting to full illumination. By the fan-like rotation of the parts it provides a new visual experience from every different angle. Size: 1800 x 850 x 420 mm

TAGS:
Faith, culture, religion, universal need of faith, transcendence, sacred symbols, stability, eternal, fast-paced, information-packed, statue-like shape, praying hands.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I started out by using organic forms that are built up of layers like onion. I transformed these into geometric forms, multiplied and rotated them. I wanted to symbolize that we are all embedded in some bigger unity. As a psychologists we studied the findings on faith, beliefs, metacommunication and sacred objects used in homes.

CHALLENGE:
We were dedicated to create a piece that does not segregate people by the institutionalized forms of faith. By concentrating on the universal need of mankind to believe in something, we wanted to find the common parts, the parts that bind us together on the level of society. It was challenging to focus on the universality of this basic need for faith instead of turning to specific religions.
