Manuela Sosa and I started on our lamp project by creating a welded metal skeletal structure, covered by digitally printed fabrics that Melissa and I designed for our collaboration with Insight; a collection of women’s surf wear, to be released beginning of December, Insight sent us this whole roll of fabric for our art projects.  The lamp should resemble a Chinese paper lantern. For now this is just a prototype, i’d like to continue to find out how to turn the lamp into something more flexible and portable, researching into different materials and means of production. This lamp took ages, with a load of hand sewing etc and thanks to Kathi Glas’s extreme pattern making skills, she helped us to get the perfect fit of the fabric to the lamp’s structure.

Lamp 90 cm diameter

Yummucky yardage includes drawings from Vladimir Kraeelev

We’re going to make this lamp part of the Objektifications series by COS, an ongoing research trip into the worlds of Arts, crafts and homewares.
