- Studio Erwin Zwiers introduces a new series of lamps, ‘Twisted Lights’. The inspiration for these series came from the material used, namely bend plywood. This type of plywood is perfect to bend, when it’s properly processed, so the forming capabilities are endless. The flexibility of the material invites to make organic forms. The lamps are built from an initial shape, which is the top of the lamp. Against this original shape, bend plywood is wrapped, so that during the construction of the lamp it will grow step by step. During this process the lamps are created. In advance it can’t be determined what form eventually will come out.
These series consists of lamps that are all unique for itself. Everything is handmade, which makes no lamp the same. The uniqueness of the ‘Twisted Lights’ is that it’s a combination between an object and an utensil. Through its shape, in all its versatility, it’s an attractive object to watch. However, when the lights go on, the functional nature of the lamp will be revealed, which is a lamp that gives beautiful and warm lightin.
