The Guerrilla Designers are based in Barcelona and recently went about inserting their Thin Lamp into a design exhibit at the Barcelona MACBA Museum while no one was looking. These young industrial designers might have unorthodox ways of going about their own product placement, but showing their projects without permission at important design events is part of their mandate. They were very careful about surreptitiously transferring their lamp from a backpack to a table strewn with design mags and quietly recorded their act with their camera phone after plugging the lamp in. Was there any fallout or follow up to the Thin Lamp adventure? Time will tell. And we bet the Guerrilla Designers will, too.
The Guerilla designers have attached their own label.
