'mold' lamps by michel charlot at le bon marche

during the maison & objet 09 exhibition in paris, swiss designer michel charlot has shown a light installation at the parisian department store, le bon marché. he designed the ‘mold lamp’ in 2007, while still studying at ECAL, lausanne’s design academy, under the guidance of joerg boner. the final shape embraces the molding process of the material while exploiting defects that occur during the process of creation. these defects, instead of being eliminated, become the very nature of the object, and, technically speaking, they make it possible to obtain larger surfaces with less weight and better resistance to deformation.
