Barcelona-based design studio CreativeAffairs has created a collection of lamps based on the idea of mixing two different archetypes, with different functions, in order to create a new typology of object. The two chosen archetypes are a table lamp and a trestle.
“An object and its context.” says Creative Affairs of ‘One+One’. “The end result is a hybrid element that has a new identity inherited from the two of its predecessors. It becomes an object to light a space, or a piece of furniture to divide a space and to leave some accessories on.”
A design with a somewhat experimental nature, One+One’s materials are too: ceramic porcelain with different glazing techniques, lacquered wood and powder coated steel all finished in the same color to give an effect of silhouette emphasizing “a sculptural element standing in the space”.
