Drawings of the 7 light objects
"Light Bulbs" from Pieke Bergmans
Dutch designer Pieke Bergmans (see blog 12/3/09) joins Dutch design studio, Studio Job (see blog 12/3/09) to create Wonderlamp, a collection of 7 light objects. The pieces were done in associate with Milanese gallery Dilmos and will be presented next month at the 2010 Milan Furniture Fair.
Studio Job is known to create fantasy, over-sized cast bronze objects and Pieke Bergmans, who works with a wide variety of materials, has used handblown glass to create amorphous shaped objects, including vases slipping off a table (see blog 12/3/09) and "melting or deflating" light bulbs. Their current collaboration combines a variety of her large blown-glass light bulbs with the monumental "ordinary" objects (including a teapot, a flash light, and a pipe) made by Sudio Job. Combining fantasy and reality, these pieces will definitely be among the most interesting and imaginative works in Milan.
I can't wait to see these "design/art accessorations" and look forward to showing you images of the actual pieces from Milan!!!
