Tarek Dada’s lamp uses two light sources

 

Wall Lamp, a lighting fixture designed by Tarek Dada, merges art and function, using two distinct light sources. The first is a tube integrated with various materials, allowing the wall itself to become part of the piece as light interacts with different surfaces. The second, a concealed source, illuminates a colorful mirrored plane, casting reflections that transform the surroundings and the people within, blending the lamp into the living space. An LED strip light is discreetly nestled into the main metallic piece, casting a soft glow on the triangular plane, while an LED profile, concealed within a sandblasted plexiglass tube, diffuses the light gently throughout the space.

wall lamp features textured and colorful metallic planes

 

A steel sheet folded into an L-shape is manually etched to achieve the unique textured surface of the Wall Lamp by Tarek Dada. This primary piece attaches to the wall via a concealed metallic frame and supports all other elements. Next, a 5mm stainless steel sheet is cut into a triangular plane. After polishing its surface to a mirror-like finish, a lacquer with selected pigments is applied to create a gradient of colors. This plane is then discreetly attached to the main metallic piece at an angle. Subsequent steps involve perforating a sheet of brushed stainless steel to create a porous surface and oxidizing a piece of brass, which is then lightly polished to produce a reflective finish. Finally, the installation of the two light sources completes the design by the Beirut-based designer.
