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.

Flowers I love

Spring begins when I buy for the first time tulips! I’m a little bit spoiled because we live in an area in The Netherlands which is famous for it’s tulips and other flower bulbs, but still I love them!

We all know tulips but these I find very special. I love the colors and how they are different from the normal tulips. Tulips are never boring. 20140510-124335.jpg
