Description

“Lightsaber” is a piece from the Renaissance Collection, which is dedicated to the innovative and original upcycling of vintage furniture design. The main idea behind works from this collection is to combine the past and the present in flexible new forms and structures that are given new life. “Lightsaber,” which features wall lamps from the 1970s that have been repurposed here as shades, is marked by a bespoke, 1900s feeling while it is shaped by a millennial sense of flexibility — it can be used as table, wall or ceiling lamp.

About the designer


laBoratuvar Studio

Fatih Başgöze is a designer and partner of Istanbul-based design studio Laboratuvar Studio, which he founded in 2010 with his wife, Ceren Başgöze . The studio, located in the historic Beyoğlu district of Istanbul, specializes in various fields of design, from interior and architectural projects to furniture and design objects. Laboratuvar Studio’s approach is based on a critical questioning of materials, symbols, forms, and colors, especially in relation to the cultural framework of Istanbul. The hallmark works of this young studio are their one-off editions of “upcycled” traditional furniture for their Renaissance Collection, which present an “analytic archaeology\" of furniture in Istanbul by exploring vintage designs through a modern lens.

Curated by

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making. The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
