20 Apr Fragments of Light
For your consideration, the minimalist (and uber-cool) Fragment Lights series, by Hayo Gebauer. The table lamps are composed of fragmented and slanted shapes that form primal outlines. Color helps liven the rather austere shapes.
“The resemblance with monumental and industrial silhouettes is opposed by a bright color palette,” explains Gebauer.
Form meets function with these unique pieces, which are envisioned with simplicity and softness in mind. “They are meant to illuminate table tops, window sills, bookshelves, or dark corners,” adds the designer. The lamps can be disassembled and flat-packed.
“The resemblance with monumental and industrial silhouettes is opposed by a bright color palette,” explains Gebauer, a Berlin-based industrial designer specialized in furniture, lighting and unique lifestyle products. Gebauer founded his studio after his studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016. Since graduating, the studio has participated in trade shows and fairs in Milan, Stockholm, New York and Cologne. His designs have since been licensed by furniture brands and commissioned by private clients. In 2016 he ranked on the Dezeen Hotlist and in 2020 his first commercial product, Ogle Chair, received a Red Dot Award.
