Lamp fRandL — for reading and lighting

Project Client: Self-initiated project
YEAR: 2021

The fRandL floor lamp is made from recycled cardboard. The parts of the lamp are composed of seven layers, precisely cut by machine, then glued by hand and painted with water—based colors. Shadows are made by folding the cardboard in two layers. The triangular parts are added on top of the lamp and are interchangeable depending on its position for reading or lighting. The 3D printed power switch was designed in such a way that it solves the problem of two output cables from the lampshade, enabling connection to the main switch. The goal was to avoid one—way use of the product and allow the product to interact with the user. The interaction takes place in several ways. Selecting the position of the lamp directs the position of the shade on the lamp, which is attached at an angle of 60 degrees. One position provides additional light for reading, and the other accent lighting of the space. Additional interaction is contributed by the triangular ends that are alternately inserted into the slots at the top and visually help to form the two upper forms of the floor lamp. Inspiration came from previous projects of the author, the Stripes table lamps, Tetra_E lamp and the Polygon_9 hanging lamp. The dimensions of the lamp are: height 1248 mm, width 600 mm, thickness 21 mm. The lamp comes with a 2300 mm long textile cable and two E—14, 40W LED bulbs. The package of the lamp is made of corrugated five—layer cardboard.

He is continuously engaged in creative work, which before starting the Carton light project included graphic design. He still works with different graphics programs in free time to let imagination run. They are mostly collages of different interesting photos. Since working with hands relaxes him, he also works in other techniques, such as freehand drawing. He finds inspiration in the world, probably something subconscious that wants to come out through the creative different colors and shapes. Independently, he launched the Carton light project in 2012, which included an innovative approach to the design and manufacture of lighting products. These products are in range from table and floor lamps to modular hanging lamp with original cardboard packaging. The initial idea is to make functional eco—friendly design products from cardboard produced by the recycling process. Recycling is an important segment of sustainable production that affects the reuse of raw materials that surround us from existing sources. Over time, he had the opportunity to participate in various joint design exhibitions such as Artomat, Dan_D, Design Week, Ambijenta and InDesign.
