Studio Daniel: Vederlicht (Featherlight)Posted: December 18, 2012
The dictionary defines “light” in the physical sense as a noun: the natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible, a verb: to provide with light or lighting; illuminate and finally as an adjective: of little weight; easy to lift. Studio Daniel’s Vederlicht achieves all three of these definitions using lightweight materials to provide a structure for illumination. Vederlicht houses that which has no borders and gives form to the intangible.
From Studio Daniel: Vederlicht is a fascination that I had when I was a small child, the fascination of model glider plane. Back then these planes cost too much for me to buy and I only could look at them in the shop. The small kid in me is still there so i took the technique and material for making a glider and used it to design a lighting. The material used in this design is Balsa wood and Oracover which is used to cover the wings of a glider and gives the lamp altogether it’s ultra lightweight.
