hungary-based designer panni pais
has created a collection of lamps, each endorsing a variation of human-like characterisistics.
the three-piece ‘lightme’ series is influenced by stacks of wood used when setting up a fire, where its traditional image is
translated into a language of functional objects. contemplating the possibility of a varied use in space, the manipulation of a
luminary effect is based on the inclusion of an LED illumination light source set within a plexi tube.
the packaging is an important part of the design, where the symbolic story of igniting a fire begins. we may pull out the wooden
lighting pieces – bound by their own cables – from a simple, labelled paper cylinder like that of the organization of kindling material.
