Lichtglas Lamp Sculpture by Florian Lechner

Home > Winners > #80572


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lichtglas

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lamp Sculpture

INSPIRATION:
The idea of "Lichtglas"; is to reveal the materiality of light by fraction. A special melting technique is used to warp and deform the surface of multiple layers of optical glass. The light fractioning happens on and inbetween these layers, which are partly enriched with nuances of colour. The oval shape in its vertical position is thought to be an abstract of another being you can communicate with. The oval can be seen as an expression of cosmic elipsoid movements. Light is what connects us with the cosmos.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This object is a both a lamp and a sculpture, depending on your intention and use. An oval glass disc partly framed and mounted on a steel stand can be illuminated by a LED strip. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Place the LICHTGLAS-lamp in your preferred location, switch on, and enjoy.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This lamp as a particular light sculpture was designed and developed in 2017-2018 in Southern Bavaria. The basic light guiding technology is a result of over 50 years of experience.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The glass, positioned over a sandy-ceramic mould, was molten and cooled down in a fusion oven.

Light, Glass, Lamp, Fused glass sculpture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The object is based on a special technique of fusing and slumping glass, that was developed by Florian Lechner in the 1960s. Due to this technique, diaphanous walls without a concrete skeleton or lead cames can be designed. All steps of the production process have been developed and improved during 50 years of experience in working with glass. From designing the work, designing the mould, cutting the glass and putting it in the furnace, controlling the cooling process to finishing and mounting the glass - all relevant process takes place at the own atelier in Southern Bavaria.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge is to focus and guide the light to the desired spots in the glass.

NAME:
GLASLICHTKLANG

PROFILE:
GLASLICHTKLANG developes various glasses and glass sculptures for lighting applications for architects in public and private spaces. The brand, that was created by artist Florian Lechner, uses unique self constructed fusing ovens to produce large architectural glass objects. One major focus in the work of GLASLICHTKLANG is the combination of glass, light and sound. In recapturing the physicality of glass, Florian Lechner found a possibility for making it a vehicle for light, in which light is invested with a virtually tactile quality. For Florian Lechner and his team, glass is not only a glowing material, but also a sounding material. Florian Lechner is currently putting on Sound Performances, improvising with a number of very different musicians. GLASLICHTKLANG is based in Nußdorf am Inn/ Southern Germany, only a few miles away from the Austrian Border.
