The design references and pays tribute to the most well known and iconic structure in the world: the Eiffeltower. 


To understand where the lamp is made of : it’s necessary to go closer and look at it with more caution.  The detailed structure creates a stunning shadow play.


The design is also a comment on mass-production, over-production and consuming.


The design of the Eiffel tower is enormously overproduced, used in souvenirs, prints, posters, commercials, coffee-mugs etc.  


It’s iconic shape is grown larger than the tower itself. Using mass-produced souvenirs as a building-block:  I created a new shape and design. Result is a very expressive, dynamic and striking looking lamp , with layers of humor and poetry hidden in the design.


“Colosseum” wants to express and enhance the positive connotation of the shape it is constructed from. A large suspended light that works great in restaurants, hotel-lobbys and residential spaces.
