The lamps „by accident“ form a series of four floor lamps. All designs are based on different covers of warning triangles. Their monolithic form – in the switched off state – takes itself back. When the light source is switched on and the lamp is approached, the embossed details of the otherwise unobtrusive lamp envelope are revealed. This light sculpture combines the immateriality of light with the material form of the translucent warning triangle envelope.
This series is the first sketches for a longer project in which I want to deal with luminaries and light forms. In addition to „by accident“, the interactive lamp project „stix“ has also been created.
