Product designed by Mia E Göransson for The Fifty Fifty Projects
My work, a kind of depiction of nature, has increasingly come to be characterized by anxiety and threat. Through the years, my courage to let myself be led by gut instinct and intuition has increased, which has made my design more abstract.
The results are not always beautiful, often quite ambiguous, sometimes a bit dirty, something both the rub and seductive. That is also what I want to convey with this lamp, with its function, shape and choice of materials.
When I made the model of what has come to evolve into a lamp, ashes from the volcanic eruption in Iceland dominated the news and that made an impression in my design. It was the air, the oxygen in the bubble, the pure form versus the organic unidentifiable smoky and a bit uneasy derivative of a geometric shape, the base. I constantly want to keep moving, find new ways and shapes for my art but with a strong faith in the material possibilities and significance of the season.
