Designed by Maria Tyakina
‘Fold Lamp’ is manually crafted from stainless sheet metal into a rounded form, where simultaneously organic and logical forms flow into one another to create their functionality. The ‘Fold Lamp’ is an investigation into the material properties of sheet metal, with an emphasis on the role played by the human body in the process of metal-working. The unique shape was created by hand, by applying just enough body weight to transform a thin and flexible sheet of metal into a final form. Using manual methods instead of conventional mechanical techniques allows for greater autonomy of the material. ‘Fold Lamp’ exemplifies Maria’s approach to creation: navigating between art and design, the designer explores the ways that objects mediate our connection to the body.
