Not bamboo lamp
- Anke Nunheim
‘Not bamboo lamp’ by the Design Duo Gam Fratesi is created by the repetition of one single element that can be extended infinitely. The elements are turned in wood, and are drilled inside, where the cable has to pass. There are three variants of the same element; one extension element, one socket element, and one suspension element, while there can be added an optional number of extension elements. This emphasis of the construction has a graphical effect, that draws clear circles in the wood along the lamp, and reminds of the structure in a bamboo – without being it – therefore the name ‘Not bamboo lamp’. The lamp can hang alone or it can be duplicated in a chaotic space installation, reflecting the main theme of their work: balancing between traditional and surprising.
