DESIGNER: VALENTIN LOELLMANN
A fleet of boats upside-down.
“Once I lay down and close my eyes, the world around me begins to float. A lucent light covers me and I dive into a calm sea with elegant boats drifting by” Valentin Loellmann.
Valentin Loellmann`s new lamp collection DRIFT memorizes dreamy sentiments lying afloat in the water, drifting at sea or a pattern carved by the wind.Hull-shaped corpuses - turned upside-down - let a strong, warm light disembark. Planks of oak and tropical wood are bended around and interleaved, the inside covered by a thick, white polyester layer. The strong keel and streamlined shapes embrace a dynamic momentum against the surroundings.The intersections of the planks form elegant, fluctuating lines bordered just by the contrasting plain of warm light. Wired to the ceiling, the lamps float and slightly drift as if they are carving their nautical course into the room.
