Delicate nude-coloured mesh fabric veils welded steel cord structure of these sculptural table lamps created by a young Norwegian designer Kristine Five Melvær. Named ‘Ray’, the mushroom-like lights aim to ‘question the stereotypical lamp’ and the designs were presented earlier this month in Stockholm Furniture Fair’s hall for independent designers and design schools, Greenhouse.

More about ‘Ray’:

 

‘The Ray lamps question the stereotypical lamp. They relate to the archetype but challenge the way we perceive it. Reminiscent of a scenery or a sketch, the lamp reveals the light source completely, but at the same time creates distinctions between light source and lit space. The two Ray lamps have different skeletal proportions and their textile skins have slightly different color shades. When paired together they make a couple.

 

‘The unusual appearance and large sizes make the Ray lamps into functional sculptures, suitable for a living room space. Referring both to skin and intimate clothing, the bedroom makes another natural habitat for the lamps. The partially hidden light source triggers other connotations such as domestic scenes viewed through net curtains or the sun through a warm, misty sky.’
