Ploypan Theerachai’s CONST Lamp allows the user to have fun in addition to providing light.
As a student at Konstfack University College Theerachai recognized that “play” is becoming synonymous for creativity and problem solving. She uses play as a methodology for her design process and argues that concept and personality have become more sellable commodities today than simple functionality.
The CONST desk lamp is composed of three basic components; base, body and shade. Keeping in mind these simple elements and their respective roles, Theerachai playfully combines expression with function.
The concrete and marble base keep the octagon-shaped wood body balanced and allows for the adjusting the angle of the shade by rotating it, which, says Theerachai, is “reminiscent of playing with Lego blocks”.
