The young, Athens-based industrial and furniture designer Dimitrios Stamatakis has realised this 170cm-tall lamp, which, as he explains, is ‘intended to define its own environment through its functionality and presence in space; it is designed to develop a sense of orientation through radiation of light and energy, and influence in a positive way those around it.’

Called ‘Lighthouse’, the durable, pared-down yet striking design was awarded the 1st group prize in Young Balkan Designers 2011 competition and consists of maple wood tripod and a powerful, customised led lighting system enclosed within a handmade, elongated capsule made of thermal shock-resistant borosilicate glass .

‘Lighthouse Lamp’ reflects the philosophy, that objects have an independent validity of their own and can therefore exist autonomously regardless of their surrounding environment while at the same time they have the ability to transform and re-establish the space.
The vertical use of the light which defines its form and design, provides a 360º diffusion of light in space while it is placed on the top of a tripod. In this way it offers a monumental character to the lamp seeking to attract life close to it.

 

It is produced on a 12 pieces limited edition series in collaboration with Paris based Tools Gallery, which is the main distributor in France.’
