From Form Us With Love:
Form Us With Love has designed an interactive installation of 91 linked 24 carat gold covered Work Lamps creating a massive Light Jockey instrument. The installation was uncovered June 18 at Design House Stockholm’s opening of their OPEN concept in Boda, Sweden.
“When we designed the Work Lamp for Design House Stockholm in 2009, we wanted to use the typology of something that was considered greasy and make it beautiful. When DHS asked us to embellish their OPEN opening with something special, we thought it would be a great idea to use the Work Lamp and push this idea even fur ther by making an interactive gold chandelier out of a garage utensil.” says Petrus Palmér, John Löfgren, Jonas Pettersson of Form Us With Love.
The Work Lamp LJ installation consists of 91 pieces of 24 carat gold plated Work lamps complete with individual dimmers attached to a separate control table. 1100 cable ties was used to link the lamps together. The interactive installation allows the viewer to interact with the installation to create graphic patterns or light moods.
The installation can be constructed on demand and this particular version would cost approximately 20.000 Euro.
