Lamps – Danish Daily Products
Design: Jeremy Walton
The range of Danish Daily Products takes the specific task of each as its inspiration. In doing so they stand as inviting reminders of their activities, promoting the reliable almost forgotten pleasure of books, pencils and magazines. The user adds to the product in some way or form, creating a bond between user, activity need and product.
The lamps utilise the growing accessibility of Laser cutting in steel factories, seen as an opportunity to batch produce products as easily as one gets photos developed from SnapySnaps 24 hour photo printing. With steel factories switching to digitally controlled production, this allows one to avoid the high start up costs or tooling costs normally incurred for having items stamped. In what I term as shoe box production, I batch produce the steel parts which are then held in stock in shoe boxes and assembled to order.
The Reading Lamp is for a personal space and is touched and moved regularly. Removing the book to read inclines the light towards the reader.
