LumimózaCrafted, layered porcelain lamp
Lumimóza, a handcrafted, unique, tradeable porcelain lamp.
Europe’s porcelain industry is an artesanal industry that faces stiff comvpetition from plastic materials. Being a sustainable product with a long tradition of expertise, the sector needs to reinvent itself and seek new products and markets.
Porcelain is a fireproof, electric shock protected material with a fine vintage feeling. It could bring back the crafted value not only in to the modern buildings, but it could complete the aesthetics of the historic building interiors as well.
The Project aims at developing a new translucent layered porcelain material, for use in lighting.
The material is suitable to form aesthetically delightfull detailed, costumizable craft works.
In order to form a complete lamp, there is need for a suspension assembly and sustainable well-designed packaging, that protects against breakage during transportation.
The idea is to develop a layered, patterned structure out of porcelain and apply to lamp production. The partners will work on designing laser cuttable patterns, assembly and hemp packaging for the lamp.
The use of technology will introduce a novel approach to a craft industry to create a unique look combined with a contemporary design.
