Beautiful design

You could say a lamp is just a lamp. But when I saw these beautiful designs I’m not so sure anymore. These designs show that a lamp could be much more.

Forgotten stereo amplifiers

Volume

Volume lightyears

Manufactured by Lightyears // 2013

Volume lamp is a small table lamp that takes inspiration from the buttons on the old stereo amplifiers. An apparently forgotten, but significant gesture, where through a mechanical rotation of the button, we obtained a clear and direct perception of the function, increase or decrease the volume. Volume lamp design comes from the desire to rediscover this direct feeling. The function is emphasized entirely in the overall design, reaching the boundary between concept and design, a lamp dimmer or a dimmer lamp? The size of the shade is proportioned to the size of the hand, inviting to touch and use the lamp in an informal way, laying the hand on its shade and adjusting the intensity of light with a simple gesture.
