Central to the LIGHT_NESS concept is the creation of an object from very simple elements that you make yourself. UXUS wanted to inspire and motivate people to be more involved with the design process instead of remaining in a passive and consuming state. Consumers are asked to engage on a creative level and are invited to make their own unique lamp, simultaneously producing an interactive and memorable experience- not just a fine and polished high design product. Inspiration for LIGHT_NESS was drawn from the UXUS “Not So Fragile” collection, which used re-purposing furniture as the core design principle. UXUS developed the concept where user/designer roles become interchangeable; the consumer dictates what the product should look like and the designer is limited to simply providing the material. LIGHT_NESS was first introduced during Dutch Design Week (22-30 October) in Eindhoven at the Klokgebouw. Several guests were invited to make a lamp before the event, which were showcased during the exhibition. The lamps are assembled by taking the frames and putting them together, attaching the cord to the desired position and lastly, taping the frame with the neon orange tape provided to create the “lamp shade”. Each lamp became an individual statement of the owner’s taste and perception of what a hanging lamp could be. The result was a whimsical and highly individualized collection of designs that expressed the maker’s/owner’s personality. Read Less
