Description

Through a close inquiry into an optician’s process and production, Object Density have realized the opportunity to redefine an element of waste. The “Lens Luminaire” collection seeks to reinstate the value of imperfect, un-usable optical lenses, by highlighting their inherent beauty and unique distortive qualities

The collection began as a tangible convergence of inspiration, drawing upon Eindhoven’s (NL) history of lighting innovation, New Objectivity architecture, and the detailing of contemporary luxury optics, to form a suspended light-based artwork. The installation has been distilled to a collection of floor and desk lamps suitable for residential spaces.

By drawing upon cultural narrative and considered materiality, the lamps reflect how the interplay of past and present may shape our future. A future in which ‘waste’ material can be recontextualized and imbued with renewed social and economic value.

Notes:
– Lenses used will vary from what is pictured. These are waste products and we celebrate the uniqueness of each one we receive.
– All brass parts are sealed with Renaissance Wax, a micro-crystalline wax with high resistance to moisture, providing a barrier against clouding, corrosion, fingerprints, and oil, water and alcohol stains. However, the piece will slowly patina over time, developing a darker, warmer tone.
– We believe in business as a force for good and donate 1% of sales to a charity or organisation chosen for each design project. 1% of sales from The L

About the designer


Object Density

Object Density is an Eindhoven-based design studio established by Nicola Charlesworth and Kim Stanek. Originally from Australia, the duo moved from Sydney to Eindhoven in 2019 to immerse themselves in dutch design culture while founding their studio.

Object Density creates artistic objects of use, drawing upon research and cultural narrative to communicate values of sustainability and community. Often integrating waste or discarded materials, they seek to reinstate value through conscious process and material decontextualisation.

Through examination of object typologies, materials and processes of the past and future, Object Density believes that a designed object can be ‘dense’. Dense with the tacit knowledge of those who contributed throughout the design process.

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.
