The floor lamp is part of the furniture collection Quintessence - a project inspired from Romanian and Moldovian traditional craftsmanship. Together with the designer Mihai Stamati, we set out to research and revalue the old production techniques in order to create a unique collection of furniture responsive to contemporary requisites.This project involved the collaboration with craftsmen and encouraged us to research the local materials and the stories behind them
The linen thread is an important element of the Quintessence floor lamp. First it surrounds the assembly point of the wooden structure, making it stronger, then rises around the lighting source, creating a rhythm of linear shadows. The lamp can be easily assembled, you simply attach the 3 wooden legs to the lamp core and afterwards you add the linen thread.
This project was exposed at 10th edition of Biennale Internationale Design Saint Etienne, 2017. More about the entire story of the project on this blog!
