hagai vered compresses brass + steel pipes into lighting objects

 

tel aviv-based designer hagai vered manufactures lighting fixtures and furniture which explore the tension between the raw outcome of machine-based manufacturing and the delicate antithesis of the sensitive human touch. his work results in such a manner that the dialogue between delicate and rough is always present. for ‘ramphis’ and ‘turturro’ lamp, the creative squashed brass and hard steel pipes with a four-ton press machine to produce the lighting fixtures.

the design reduces to the minimum the use of material

 

 

 

designed by hagai vered, the ‘turturro’ lamp was named after actor jhon turturro—a thin tall man. the brass pipe has been squashed in a way similar to that of the geodesic dome structure. the brass was kept as natural as possible, with soft finishing touches making it as shiny as possible. the ‘ramphis’ lampshades series is made out of wide hard steel pipes, which made the production more complex.

‘my obsession with squashing steel pipes has followed me for years,comments hagai vered. ‘my work is about finding more minimalistic and simple joint and shapes that can be created from the pipe. my attention was so far on soft and shiny materials as brass and copper. lately, rough steel is also part of my works.’
