Vertebra Flexible Floor Lamp by Christoph Guenther

Home > Winners > #73506


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Vertebra

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Flexible Floor Lamp

INSPIRATION:
The primarily inspiration came from folding studies, structures and techniques. The idea to create bodies out of plane materials and the possibility to build them in continuous chains in any length. It improves the production process and the range of application. This folding concept allows to create an endless string of vessels, made out of multi-layered single strips.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Vertebra results from studies in folding structures and techniques. Plane materials can be merged together to a multi-layered strip. This sandwich construction than can be folded to a continuous chain of single bodies, representing the lampshades. The lampshade supports a goose-neck rod to keep its shape nice and vice versa, the rod gives stability to the folding. Vertebra satisfy your individual creativity in an unlimited range of deforming. A cast iron base enables stability and a solid stand.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
With the right level of stability and freedom of movement there are many ways to shape this lamp individually. Rings, waves, straight or twisted shapes, it ensures always a well defined curve.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in June 2015 in Berlin, Germany

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The lamp shade is a sandwich construction, consists out of multiple, flexible and rigid layers merged together to a single stripe. It is than folded by a specific concept to receive a chain of vessels connected with joints. The support represents a goose-neck rod. In each vessel LEDs provide the light and are connected throw the vessel with the rod for maximized freedom of shaping the lamp. The base is made of cast iron and let the lamp stand safe and heavy on the ground.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Length 220 x Width 220 x Height 2000 mm Base made of cast iron, rod and goose-neck rod made of steel, lampshade made of folded multi layer construction

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The way of creating voluminous object out of plain materials by the use of folding constructions is a smart way to minimize the amount of steps in production and therefore in costs and time. The idea of creating endless chains of vessels connected by joints in only one process is a huge improvement and offers plenty more options in many other fields of application. The solution of Vertebra showcase one of these applications and combines contemporary complex design with a well elaborated process of cost-efficient, resource-saving production.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to meet the needs of a fully functional floor lamp constructed out of one single plane sheet. The unique folding concept had less tolerance in size and thickness to fulfill all the requirements like volume of each vessel or bend radius. The idea is to use a simple technique and create complexity in shape and function by using a simply plane sheet of any material.

NAME:
Christoph Guenther

PROFILE:
Christoph is a designer who works and lives in New York. He always understood design as a combination out of different perspectives and professions. Early on he felt the urge to create a holistic design that combined architecture, interior design, industrial/product design and fashion design. He was especially intrigued by the fact that, despite the complexity of each profession, they shared far more similarity than it seemed at first glance. Each of these categories has a common final objective that is deeply connected to human beings but differentiates in its relationship to the human body and the type of mental work required to accomplish it. However, if you combine all four approaches, you can begin to understand design in its completeness, observing and considering it from several different angles.
