launched during imm cologne and maison & objet in paris, 2014 the ‘mushroom lamp’ is a collaboration between australian designer nick rennie and french manufacturer ligne roset. originally shown in 2002 for an initial solo exhibition as part of salone satellite during the milan furniture fair, the ‘mushroom lamp’ has been redeveloped. bouncing back to life after being knocked, the light gently rocks from side to side until it comes to a rest in its standing position.

‘nothing seems more alien than mushrooms – their smooth, pod-like domes protecting the delicate, lacy folds underneath… I watch as the mushrooms are torn from the earth by their fat stems. they seem weightless as they careen through the air. many remain unbroken, whole and resilient. one particularly large one spins end over end as it hits the ground, finally coming to rest in an upright position. its balance is perfect and it stands there motionless, as if nothing has occurred.’ extracted from a short story about the design influence written by rennie’s good friend nick lord.
