The BrassProp Lamp is created from the feeling of always having the pressure to create new ideas. As a self employed designer you are relying on your creativity. This means you have to come up with unique ideas constantly. This pressure leads to a lot of thinking, modeling and drawings, some good, some not so much. The sketches on paper that don’t make the cut get trashed. These “prop” of paper have a certain aesthetic to them.
The Prop Lamp is from the Prop Series, a series of polished and crushed brass sheets. Every single piece is made by hand. This makes all the lamps, in a way, unique pieces. They come in three sizes: S, M and L, and one big piece; The Chandelier.
The polished and crushed lampshade surfaces reflect the light beautifully, even when turned off.
Although every piece is carefully polished before crushing, the crushing might scratch the surface lightly. The lamps are coated, but because of the natural fading proces, stains might occur over time. Be very careful for sharp edges.
