Glass and marble lamp inspired by old tube amplifiers
Amp is a range of small lamps inspired by old tube amplifiers from the 1960s. The unique shapes and classic materials of marble and glass add a nostalgic and at the same time, contemporary feel to Amp. The decorative bulb emits a stunning glow though glass lampshades, making a stunning contrast to the heavy marble.
The designer has visually highlighted the essential details, such as the way the shade rests on the socket. This draws attention to the fact that the shades can easily be removed for changing bulbs and cleaning.
The transparent glass shade lets the light shine from the decorative light bulb in all directions. Amp takes up less space visually, allowing for many different applications in the home. Hang one Amp Lamp in the hallway, in a corner of the living room, or create a cluster of Amp Lamps over your dining room table for modern ballroom effect.
The Amp Lamps come with a matching textile cord. The table lamp is supplied with a dimmer switch for adjustable lighting.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
