Description

Hand-made lamp from natural, exclusive materials. The exterior of “The Queen” lamp is made from corroding steel, while the inside of the lamp is covered with 23.75 carat gold plate. Its clean lines and simplicity characterizes the contemporary design of the lamp shape. In turn, the ambitious combination of materials creates a truly impressive image of a luxury design lamp. In this outstanding lamp, the most valuable face of metal meets the poorest. These two surfaces are exclusively handmade; its golden shine is guaranteed by the handcraft of expert goldsmiths, while nature draws naturally spontaneous and unpredictable patterns on the rust of lampshade.

Because each of Mammalampa’s lampshades are hand-made exclusively with natural materials, each one is unique.

About the designer


Ieva Kaleja

The author of \"mammalampa’s\" collection of lamps and its signature designs is designer, Ieva Kalēja

 She has obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Art in The Art Academy of Latvia and a Master’s degree at the Domus Academy in Milan.

Her work is characterised by the fusion of art and design. In her creative work, she has chosen to step outside the realm of virtual thinking; she finds real things and new ways of applying natural materials, thus forming her signature style. Design ideas are inspired by everything primeval, that comes form mother nature and that is not stamped with cliches of the values.  For instance, bent in a meadow or pile of wood She offers a new aesthetic, in which the natural harshness of materials is contrasted with their perfect refinement. This is characterised by the contemporary interpretation of \"handmade\", i.e. not replacing machines, but finding those items which machines cannot provide, nuances of refining materials through natural processes.

Currently Ieva Kalēja works at the Art Academy of Latvia and Latvian Design Centre - the most significant institutions of design in Latvia.

 

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.
