STATE OF POSSESSIONS

WHAT
An exploration into the nature of belongings through a series of lamps. These are designed to redefine our relationship with the things that surround us.

WHY
Due to mass manufacturing, we hardly get a chance to bond with our possessions. They have become too disposable and interchangeable: there to serve us. It’s hardly the basis for a good relationship.

HOW
These lamps create more of a connection with the user. One only switches on when you pour it a glass of water. Another needs a scarf to light up, while the third must be tilted, forcing the user to adapt to its individual character.

QUOTE
I set out to create an emotion rather than a function.
