LEM

Series of wall lamps

The shapes of the series LEM are the first results of the analysis and interpretation of quasicrystals and aperiodic patterns. In chemistry, quasicrystals stand with their aperiodic but still ordered structure for a contradiction to the actually required periodic symmetry of molecules within a crystal.

During the development process, crystalline structures have been constructed and implemented in three-dimensional shapes of fine wire mesh. These shapes are covered with layers of different textiles and foils, thereby creating a play of light which varies in addition depending on the used bulb.

The main intention in the still ongoing design process of LEM is the search for shapes with a very high visual complexity on one hand and a construction which is reduced to the essentially necessary parts on the other.
