Berlin based design collective Superéquipe presented their ‘Notch’ pendant light at Design Interfiction, an exhibition with the theme of digital culture, its principles and concepts, during Milan Design Week 2013.
An analogue product, the result of a practical design experiment by the group’s six designers, Notch “plays with contrasts and unites them in one shape. Light / dark, inside / outside, entity / void. The decomposition of materiality offers light a new perspective.” says Superéquipe.
Applying digital culture’s tenets, “Every designer initiates an open idea, passing it on to the next one and receiving another idea in return. The idea is being corrected, extended, recited by six authors – crisscross, back and forth. The primary idea changes, grows, evolves and takes shape – authorship unknown?”
