eigruob “Bourgie” lamp by Nendo

“To commemorate the 10th anniversary of its iconic Bourgie table lamp, Italian plastic furniture specialist Kartell invited ten designers associated with the company to create tribute pieces for a special exhibition. For our contribution, we decided to work with two of the lamp’s most distinctive characteristics – its use of silhouettes and its transparency – rather than touching the original design itself. We created a new table lamp by inverting and rotating the Bourgie lamp’s silhouette, so that when two of the new lamps are lined up together, the space between them forms the upside-down silhouette of the Bourgie lamp. Because our homage inverts both the lamp’s figure-ground relationship and our regular sense of up and down, we named the lamp ‘Eigruob’.” Photos: Akihiro Yoshida. nendo.jp
