Light, Skin vs G-Star Tension
This light uses a random collection of elements—lamps, denim, and a melting pot—to create an object unlike anything that we might think of as a light. The discarded elements that make up the structural base are given a new identity by being wrapped in denim, while the individual lamps are connected in a way that creates a new object. The pieces are held by angular supports that provide a precarious but balanced appearance.
