This past weekend was the graduate show at the Hamburg Art School, HFBK.
We, sadly, couldn’t make it to Hamburg but have at least had the opportunity today to browse the catalogue.
Amongst all the works attempting to redefine, reposition and react, there were a few very interesting furniture designs.
Clearly all “concept” pieces, our favourite was without doubt “Lotus” by Hong Fan.
We can’t tell you any more about Hong Fan, but Lotus sounds wonderful.
A lamp in the shape of a lotus flower, Lotus has a central spotlight that provides a continuous background light.
However the genial about Lotus is that it “opens” as people approach. And closes as they leave.
And that when it is open LEDs on the under side of the “petals” are illuminated.
Apart from the energy saving aspects, Hong Fan’s design also offers wonder options when planning the lighting in a public space, office … or indeed your home.
