'Archetypal' Lamp - Prototyped
Designed by SquadOne.
ARCHETYPAL is a set of lamps designed to question the idea of the archetype. The archetypal object is an abstract element that belongs toour memory and helps us define a unique representation of a particular type ofobject. The idea is that the whole lamp becomes the lampshade, being representedas a floating shape, which is there and it is not there, as a blurry image ofan object. The top is made of blown glass and has three different finishes:frosted, clear and mirror. The mirror finishing is made through a processcalled vacuum metalizing. This process allows the glass to have a reflectingfinishing which becomes clear when the light goes through.
This project was developed in collaboration with CreativeAffairs.
