NIL product of the month, Nov 2013.
Top combines the contrasts of dawn and dusk. The lamp is dimmable and, using the (dimmer switch) handle, can be maneuvered to different heights for functional or more atmospheric light. The spinning top shape and flat top plane mean that it appears to float and alters the mood and space.
Concept: Using a shallow ‘spinning top’ form and a focus on motion to create a playful and poetic piece that both brings light and alters space architecturally. The flat top plane and milky glow underneath tell different stories when placed at varying levels in a space.
After carving a wooden mould for the bottom shape, it was vacuum formed and the remaining pieces fashioned out of mdf board and ash wood.
Some themes explored: rhythm, motion, form, drama, humour.
