Origin: Vienna, Austria

The starting point of this project was a focus on light sources. Instead of completely designing a newly shaped lamp, “Relumine” plays with the idea that we have to switch from old light bulbs to new energy saving light sources. Each “Relumine” uses two, discarded lamps, which are disassembled, sanded, newly lacquered and adapted with newer technology, before they are connected by a glass tube which holds a fluorescent tube. By introducing a different mean of light source to the old lamps, their look and feel changes completely. They become one new unit, each with its own character. Together these two lamps need less energy than each one in its previous life. The project was initially made for the bulb-fiction show at the Gallery Klaus Engelhorn during Vienna Design Week 2010.
