Lightning 2011

The brief of the commission asked for a solution to use the classic ceiling lamp by the Swiss artist and designer duo, Susi and Ueli Berger, as a standing lamp. By transcribing the «Wolkenlampe» (cloud lamp) into a flash-shaped tripod, the figurative character of the object could be enhanced.
The tripod is fixed to an existing opening in the luminary without any further modifications of the lamp.

Tripod: standard angle steel, powder-coated, adjustable in height
Luminary: «Wolkenlampe» by Susi and Ueli Berger (1970), available at wb engros
Status: private commission
