Norwegian designer Kristine Five Melvær designed these storage jars and lamps to showcase small, precious belongings.
She presented the Light Jars as part of the Greenhouse exhibition of young designers at Stockholm Furniture Fair earlier this month.
The wooden stoppers conceal the light source and rise up to support the electrical flex.
Here are some more details from the designer:
The family of Light Jars captures the light and displays it as the precious treasure it is. By placing beloved objects and trinkets in them, the lamps can literally be filled with personal meaning.
The members of the Light Jars family all have different postures and proportions, but the same neck size. The lid holding the light source resembles the power plug on the other end of the cord, considering the poetic notion of power transmission as a life-giving source.
Materials: Hand-turned oak, Mouth-blown glass, Textile-covered electrical cord.
Norwegian Designer Kristine Five Melvær investigates the subject of object communication, bridging the disciplines of product design and graphic design. She is focusing on the communicative potentials of objects as a means to create emotional bonds between object and user. By searching for the sensual essence of phenomena’s, she translates these qualities into sensuous objects with a scandinavian simplicity.
