For his 10th anniversary Zurich-based object designer Tom Strala presents ‘Animal Farm No. 1′, a wall light that explores the “technical and aesthetic possibilities of brass”.

“In an analytic game with metal we conceive the breaking points of bending, breaking, or liquefaction.” says Strala. “Exactly these breaking points are interesting to me. The barrier of changing condition, because this is where we designers can ‘make’ something out of this material and develop something new.”

“Animal Farm No. 1 arises from exactly this body of thought. In a process of three years this wall light found its shape. During that time the technical and aesthetic possibilities of brass were exhausted and enhanced on many prototypes. Slits and bores were branded by most modern laser technology into raw tubes, dimensions were changed, transformed, and the consigned marks and shapes analyzed. Aim was a grand metamorphose by minimal destruction.”
