OBJ-01 is an understandable simple gesture. At a glance,
it reveals its material, its manufacturing process, its function and its use.

A plate of raw metal, that can be steel, stainless steel or brass, cut by laser and assembled by
hand with a rubber hammer and no welding joinery. Its size responds to the modulation and
format of the material in its commercial standards.

Pure geometric figures build the lighting fixture; a rectangle, a circle and a cylinder at the back
which contains the LED light spot. The circle, when cut out, adopts the function of a screen.

This project has been longlisted in the lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
