Milan 2012: Ventura Lambrate with studio Wendy Maarten and dmoch
At Ventura Lambrata Lisette spotted these beautiful Porcelain lamps by Dutch designers Studio Wendy Maarten for us. The lamps are – inspired by the harbour of Rotterdam and shipbuilding, this handmade lamp is adjustable in height with a pulley system. The use of black porcelain gives this old mechanism a sturdy new look – .
Beautiful lamps by dmoch called the Teresa lights. dmoch are David Ericsson, Ania Pauser and Marcus Berg. dmoch's studio is situated in Stockholm and their work is a reflection of them. - One of the key elements for DMOCH is to find the balance between life and honest objects from a holistic point of view. To combine poetic ideas in the future, contemporary and historical ways
to find unexplored areas of design. Humour is an important ingredient that permeates the work of DMOCH, both to develop in the profession as designers but also and to keep their insanity. –

dmoch's Teresa's lights and mobiles:
"The idea of the lamps is to add new values through interaction with different levels in the room. Allow the lights to become a part of the interior and the architecture. To elaborate how the shapes interact with their environment. The wall can be connected to the ceiling, the floor or other elements in the room. It’s not just light, but an object that connects other things. The user can take control over the lamp by changing its position each day, and at the same time change the environment it’s in.
Two counterweights in fabric with two different shades, two pulleys included. You can move the lamps as you please just fix the pulley where you want to have the light, together or apart, high or low."
