jumelle by jakob gebert

table light jumelle made out of opaline glass

the table lamp jumelle is inspired by the works of wilhelm wagenfeld and his double walled lighting designs. the design of jumelle consists of three parts, which are only put onto another: a round bottom, incorporating the light, and two mouth blown glass bodies. the light is shining from the bottom into the double walled glasses: a spatial light body arises.

materials: mouth-blown glass, aluminum colours: opaline and smoked blue light technique: LED

the lighting series is part of the exhibition ‘the necessity of other’ together with jakob gebert at ventura lambrate 2012, via massimiano 6 at milan design week.

in the exhibition organic and geometric products are united in a spatial still life.the products interweave with each other through their material, colour and shapes. some of those shapes have a strict and precise definition and others are intentionally left to their manufacturing process. a collection of new products from hanna krüger and jakob gebert.
