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.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
