Point and Dot by David Taylor at 20 Designers at Biologiska
Stockholm 2011: designer David Taylor of Stockholm studio Made By: presented these yellow plastic pendant lamps wrapped in paper as part of 20 Designers at Biologiska in Stockholm earlier this month.
Called Point, the lamp shades were suspended in the carved wooden stairwell of the Biologiska museum, where 20 young designers presented work among the museum's dioramas of stuffed animals - see our earlier story for more information.
Taylor also presented a series of candle sticks called Dot, made from brass pine and silver.
Stockholm Design Week took place 7-13 February. See all our coverage of the event here »
Here are some more details from Taylor:
A new candlestick series accompanies a pendant lamp in kicking off an exhibition intensive 2011.
The candlestick edition “Dot” comprises 3 pieces made to work together as a group and to cooperate when used throughout a living space. Brass, pine and silver are integrated into a pleasing disharmony that projects a natural balance and speaks of an earthy, organic calm.
“Point” has been named after the place where the land runs out and the water begins, a pendant lamp that borrows it’s characteristic form from it’s candlestick cousin “Dot”. Plastic, paper and hemp each play a role in the construction and look of this piece. “Point” is a reduction, without removing the sentiment of the work, exuding a warm and welcoming generosity that is its essence.
My workshop and studio is at MADE BY: in the Birkastan district of Stockholm. Here I produce unique applied art objects and short series pieces for private collectors, museums and institutional collections.
