Elaine

Series of lamps

The series Elaine is based on a one-off, which Daniel Becker realised during his studies at Braunschweig University of Art under the topic „Readymade“. It was a ball-shaped pendant lamp consisting of about 150 single tea-lights with built in miniature light bulbs. The inspiration for the design arouse from the shapes the earliest satellites had, from the first models till the early 1960ies.

Two years ago, we discussed the idea of a serial production of this lamp with the renowned Dutch lighting manufacturer Quasar who were immediately enthusiastic about it. It turned out quickly that the initial idea had to be extended and optimised to develop a commercial product out of it.

During the design process, the tea-lights were replaced by facetted and polished metal reflectors, which resulted in a more glamorous, precious appearance of Elaine. All reflectors are connected to an elegant, minimal frame made of stainless steel profiles, which also serve as conductors for the electricity.

Besides ball-shaped pendant lamps in many diameters, Elaine is also available as a ceiling version and as a standing lamp.
