Silvia Pichler for Skitsch: Tape Lamp

Seeing Silvia Pichler’s Tape Lamp in person at the Skitsch store in Milano gave me a unique opportunity for some great close-up investigations of her material choice. I saw a comment on a design blog, more or less saying that this would be an easy DIY project, but available for purchase for those too lazy to create. If, in fact, you’re a true craftsman, perhaps that is a fair statement. But I believe it’s less “thrown together” than it may appear. For how quickly a project like this could go awry, the details are quite perfect and the overlay of the tape and wording has a deliberate appearance that strikes just the right balance between clarity and ambiguity. Regardless of all that, I like this lamp for its material exploration, that it does feel modern and current despite its craft-like construction.
