Vienna designers Mischer’Traxler have created a series of lights where two found lamps share one fluorescent bulb.
Called Relumine, the project involves sourcing discarded lamps then applying fresh finishes, a glass tube and low-energy light fittings to the new compositions.
The information that follows is from Mischer’Traxler:
Relumine by Mischer’Traxler
The start of this project was a focus on light sources. Instead of completely designing a newly shaped lamp, 'Relumine' plays on the fact that we have to switch from old light bulbs to new energy saving light sources.
Each 'Relumine' uses two, discarded lamps, which are disassembled, sanded, newly lacquered and adapted with newer technology, before they are connected by a glass tube which holds a fluorescent tube.
By introducing a different means of light source to the old lamps, their look and feel changes completely. They become one new unit, each with its own character. Together these two lamps need less energy than each one in its previous life.
