Fire Works by ECAL at Design Miami/Basel

During Design Miami/ Basel from 3 to 5 June 2008, ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne will be presenting projects in glass by students of the Industrial Design Department following a workshop with Max Lamb

For it’s third participation at Design Miami/, ECAL proudly presents “Fire Works”, a collection of spectacular blown-glass lights designed by a selected group of 1st and 2nd year students from the Industrial Design Department, under the guidance of young British designer Max Lamb.

The students have developed a new collection of blown-glass lighting designed specifically for Design Miami/ Basel, each design exploring the visual and physical properties of glass and exploiting the potential of the glass blowing process in collaboration with Matteo Gonet, a young glass blower from Bern.

Description of the three projects:

A triptych of primary colour, ‘Les Modules’ comprises three individual glass cones of varying height and diameter that can be arranged in 36 configurations.

A game between surface and ceiling, ‘Table Lamp’ is a pendant light and a bowl blown from a single mould.

Representing the stem of a tree, ‘Des Souches’ is a family of three cylindrical vessels in dark, natural hued glass.

A glass monolith, ‘Une Lampe en Verre’ transforms thin sheets of glass into a dark volume of light.
