estudiHac: vase collection for vondom

installation view of ‘vase lamps’ outside of hotel ingles by night




spanish designer JM ferrero of estudiHac has developed ‘vase lamps’ for spanish furniture manufacturer vondom. the collection of three lamps which range in height of 70, 180, and 220cm are produced via the technique of rotational molding. the pieces are acknowledged by their subtle shape and play of the sculptural texture of faceted diamonds. they employ the use of LED technology in which a remote control can be used to switch the unit on and off, as well as to program various color options; fixed with seven color options or ‘dynamic’ mode for a kaleidoscope of continuously changing hues.


presented during valencia design week 2011 at the feria hábitat valencia, a group of the ‘vase lamps’ were also installed outside of the city’s hotel ingles as part of the event’s offsite happenings.

  • Sorry, but this lamp looks suspiciously similar to the INOUT lamp designed by Ramon Ubeda.

    -- says:
  • I think also… just a different texture!…

    Dario says:
  • It’s very sad that some designers don’t know the limits of inspiration!!!!

    Patri says:
  • COPYCAT!!!

    John says:
  • … both designers happened to take the normal shape of a lamp and play with scale… does’t mean one copied the other… that concept has been done before both of the lamps

    Isabelle says:
  • Regardless of how or what project this looks like, i really like the rounded form of these lamps and i appreciate the images of the prototypes. Always nice to see how designers work through a design project.
