Light project – Kick off

August 1, 2010 — 1 Comment

(this post is related to my product design class @prattinstitute)

This weeks assignment will be to think of light (as in bulb and lamp) design …

some quick random thoughts concerning this topic:

  • What a bulb could stands for:
    • light
    • heat
    • direction and guidance
    • signal
    • symbol
    • ambiance
    • status
  • A lamp is a piece of furniture, which gives a room it’s character
  • As expensive and beautiful a lamp is, most of the time, the cord will be cheap and ugly
  • They are great design for desk-lamps, floor lamps, etc… whats about kitchen and bathroom?
  • What is the most interesting part? The Light…? or the shadows it creates?

Anyway, here are some very inspiring examples:
