The design of the wooden frame was inspired by the mathematical illustrations and optical illusions by M.C.Escher, Oscar Reuterswärd and their likes, hence the name MCE Lamp. Of course this ”impossible” frame is nothing but possible and it’s sturdy construction allows the big glass bowl to rest safely. The glass bowl is blown in tro different sizes as the frame and the generous bowl elegantly hides the light source. Depending on how you lean or tilt the bowl you can direct the light like a soft spotlight.
The series will be launched and presented during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2014 by the Belgian design brand PER/USE at the company own exhibition in Via Dell´Orso 12 / Brera Design District. The MCE lamp was designed as a one-off piece for the Glass Elephant exhibition during Stockholm Design Week. The exhibition was a collaboration between Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and ABB.
