Designer tells

How is your product related to the design brief; the box and the items in it?
Ideas generates from impressions and observation. I interpreted the content in the box as a collection of just that- more than the things in it self. Observations and impressions from the glass bottle, the clip, piece of rope together with the description of the light in the story of the girl with the matches.

Can you tell us a little bit about your product?
I wanted the product to create a specific mood. The result was three small lanterns with colored glass, steel, cork and fabric. I was keen to show the material properties and contrasts of the various materials.

How has your process been?
The process started with the idea of the things in the box, how I should deal with them and why. It was not until I stopped to see things as objects in itself that the observations and impressions began to generate new ideas across the objects. Finally I was left with an idea of a specific mood where I used observations of the objects as tools to bring out the idea of a lamp.
