the ‘scout lamp’ by stone designs is a hanging fixture that reinterprets old enamel cups, that were historically used to ration drinks for recreational or military purposes. the lamp is orientated with a very simple mechanism that allows the user to decide their favorable light direction. inspiration for the project stemmed from the love for enamel metal lamps and industrial products. the object hopes to restore interest in the once popular material, which has been diminishing from the market. designed by for b.lux designs, the ‘scout lamp’ will be presented at the light+building fair in frankfurt from march 30th to april 4th. the lights are also displayed in the ‘grandvalira restaurant’, see designboom’s coverage of the eatery here.
