Camus Lamp

“You Cannot Create Experience You Must Undergo It” - Albert Camus

Project

Quoting from the prolific writer Albert Camus, the lamp is a manifestation of the dualisms of life. A beacon for the human experience the lamp is constructed to be a humble exterior shell teaming with chaotic self reflection. As light penetrates through the voids of the text, it becomes a symbol of the juxtaposition of our own internal concepts of existence and the ones we attempt to maintain on the surface. Continuing the exploration of typography as a means of decoration and structure (Dharma Lounge) the Camus floor lamp creates situations where the participant is embraced by the possibilities of creating a relationship with the object through denotative and connotative ideals. The Camus Lamp was debuted at the 2009 Designspotter 3.1 at the IMM in Colonge Germany.
