Description

‘Conduit’ is a tabletop lamp that connects the heritage of marble design with contemporary manufacturing techniques.
It references the archetypal Roman aqueduct remains that dot the Southern European landscape, thus creating a “luminous conduit” for the home.

Solid marble is CNC-milled and adapted to fit a standardised 30 cm tubular bulb. Essentially a two dimensional waterjet cut out profile, the lamp features an elaborately milled groove on one side to accommodate the cable while exposing it, enhancing the directional sense between power source and light.

The choice of marble was decided based on locality. Three distinct Greek types were chosen, Chios in dark brown, Ioannina in warm grey and the classic Pentelic in bright white. Non local Travertine was added as a reclaimed material, its origin justified due to its familiarity and abundant presence in the Athenian built environment of the 1960s and 1970s.

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
