Like paper concrete lamp collection by Aust & Amelung

August 24th, 2012 by retail design blog

Produced in collaboration with DUA, Miriam Aust and Sebastian Amelung of German studio Aust & Amelung have designed ‘Like paper’, a slewed concrete lamp series that takes shape from what looks to be folded paper. Both its appearance and its haptic form interpret the material in a new context, perceived to look malleable and easy to manipulate. Following the wrinkles
of certain patterns, the manufacturing process develops individuality through its various edges, kinks and creases, making each object unique.

While some lamps shine downwards by dangling from the ceiling, others lay exhausted on the table, the cabinet or the floor and gleam diffused in strange directions. Ultimately, the project intends to alter the perception of ubiquitous items by imitating material properties, where the common sense of dealing with light and rooms become a stage for an illuminating presence.
