Aggregate Collection Lamp by CoCo Ree

Home > Winners > #86851


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Aggregate Collection

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lamp

INSPIRATION:
With the challenge to see if a design could transform modern waste, this collection aimed to reuse existing materials to create distinctly bright lights. After replacing fluorescent bulbs with LED tube lights, I knew I wanted to use the LED tubes in a floor lamp. The structural inspiration came while doing quick figurative gesture sketches, the model used a rod as a prop, bending and holding it outstretched between poses. These sketches became the essence of the design, a design that used materials motivated by human contortion.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Each lamp uses a welded skeleton made from discarded steel scraps. The body is then sculpted with a custom mix of concrete and recycled plastic. Aggregate uses this material combination to revisit structure and texture. The concrete/plastic formula is powerful and malleable, transforming modern waste. Using recycled material, each lamp attempts to elevate discarded materials. Combining these materials with filtered LED bulbs, this project proudly benefits from design principles and artistic approaches, fusing craftsmanship with functionality of brilliantly bright light.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
On/off step light switches can be found at the base of the light.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in Hong Kong in November of 2018 and was finished and shown at Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA for three months in 2019.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The substance of sidewalks and skyscrapers, Concrete is perhaps the most ubiquitous material in our contemporary culture. I first started by experimenting with Portland Cement (Type I per ASTM C 150). With weight issues during the application, experiments started with the proportions of water, cement, and gravel and additives such as, sugar, salt, shredded cardboard, shredded plastic bottles and fiber glass. Ultimately, I used shredded plastic bottles (almost as polymer or acrylic fibers) with an ECC concrete and well-graded silica sands on top of a thin alkali-resistant fiber base produced the best and most unique results.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The Walk 305mm x 1220mm x 1854mm Holding on 457mm x 762mm x 1854mm Broken 457mm x 457mm x 1854mm

TAGS:
floor lamp, light, concrete, sculptural light, lamp

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This design aimed to reappropriate materials that create our current scenic backdrops. Exploring ways to use concrete as a clay, rather than casting the material, the concrete was mixed with shaved plastic bottles and sculpted.

CHALLENGE:
By researching the effects of the growth of urban and industrial areas, what is the visual language of consumer globalization? Can design truly transform modern waste resulting from urban expansion and consumerism?
