Light is an essential part of our life. So it’s always fascinating to explore different ways designers think of portraying light in the form of lamps. This Well Lamp is an example of such a unique lamp.
When you look at the images, instantly the thought of wells crosses your mind. Well, you are correct in your assumption because the lamp has been inspired by traditional wells. Just like a bucket is tied to a rope and lowered in the well using a handle, the lamp works in a similar way.
More from the designer:
Well is slightly inspired by traditional water wells. It takes the principle of the simple wooden handle mechanism winding of the rope and thus changing its distance or the bulbs depth inside the glass container like the bucket sinking into water. In the case of lower positions the light becomes gradient blue while in the second variant it goes from clear transparent to sanded matte.
Well was created during Mejd´s project called LOADING ( local added in global ), which Works with local ( slovak & czech ) crafts transformed into contemporary design.
Containers were blown into the wooden mould, drilled in upper part (handle). The handle parts are made of maple oiled wood combined with brass elements. Bulb socket is turned of brass which makes it heavier and easier going up and down in straight line. Textile cable with its look refers to ropes used for winding in real water wells.
Well Lamp, designed by Megd Studio, is a product of czech company LASVIT.
