I started this project with a function I found interesting, but I did not know what kind of product I would end up with.
I worked with trying to use the friction magnets create when placed on a magnetic surface. What I firstly came up with was very complex, but it had an interesting function.
I approached it from different angles, simplified it and ended
up with a lamp. The round lampshade is held up by magnets, the magnets sit on 3 steel rods that create a triangle in the bottom of the heavy square foot.
The lamp changes expression very much, when it is turned, when you lean it or move the shade up and down, but it keeps the architectural expression.
This is a Thomas Albertsen solo project
