DESIGNER: MIEKE MEIJER
"Balance" is a wooden LED lamp that only illuminates when perfectly balanced.
The lamp was designed for the exhibition "Untouchables" by collective Dutch Invertuals. With this exhibition the designers present their responses to the prevailling spirit of insecurity of our times and the downside of freedom. They transposed the theme of vulnerability into contemporary designs. Balance, delicacy, curiosity and transience have formed their inspiration.
Mieke Meijer translated the theme of vulnerability into a lamp that consists of two balancing coppered posts connected by a single wire.
Leds are hidden within the horizontal post. When the coppered post are connected, the electrical circuit is completed and the light turns on. The lamp is adjustable by sliding the horizontal post.
On this design the advantages of LED technology such as low power consumption, brightness, small size and long life are sympathetically combined with tactile materials such as copper and cast bronze.
The table is available as table and floor model.
