'Granny' pendant lamp by Pudelskern Design for Casamania (IT)

'Granny' pendant lamp by Pudelskern Design for Casamania, 2010

There’s somewhat of a contradiction at the heart of Casamania’s new pendant lamp ‘Granny’, designed by Pudelskern Design and shown at the recent Maison & Objet design fair in Paris: a light (and, ergo, heat) source that sports a natural-wool covering. The aesthetic is industrial-design-meets-toothy-craft. While the wool comes from Tyrolian sheep, the lamp itself is knitted by hand in the Netherlands. You’ll be pleased to hear the material is fire-retardant…

‘Crate shelf and Clamp light’ by Martin Born

Crate shelf by Martin Born

The modules of the Crate shelf can be composed in full freedom of alignment and orientation. This three-dimensional predicate uncloses applications inaccessible to the typological wall-form: Choreographed “movements” and sophisticated access paths are as easily realised as more ordinary setups. Together with a nuanced palette of colours, the system gives architects an immense freedom in elaborating and coordinating the storage piece as an active design element.

The plug-in reading and accent light Clamp has a very figurative character and appears more as a ‘neighbour object’ than a technical illumination instrument. The lamp is powered by a recharchable battery and contains a LED light source.

These two wonderful products were designed by the young German designer Martin Born who was based in Helsinki and now just opened his new studio in Eindhoven.
