Essay

This family of lamps has a fascinatingly playful and at the same time poetical character. Inspired by the glockenspiel, the collection is divided into six design variants. The bent aluminium rods are balanced on the principle equilibrium. With their charming play of light and shade, the delicately sculptural pendant luminaires create a living and atmospheric impression in surrounding space. A special feature of the series is the interplay of material and form. Vibrating lightly, the flexible aluminium rods come into delicate contact and give off a magical sound.

Comment by the nominators:
This family of lamps has a poetic elegance that is impressive. The interplay of form, light and sound is innovative and has been convincingly and successfully realised.
