DETAILS
material: electric cable wire, electrical parts, 40 x 40 x 55 cm
 

The light fitting called String ball is reduced to the basic building elements. The shade is constructed by weaving 40 to 80 metres of electric cable into knots of various dimensions: from narrow knots around the poles of the lamp to wide knots around its equator. The volume of the light is increased or decreased by pulling out or pushing in the shade. Under the mask of functionalism there is a witty social commentary and the cartoonish symbol of poverty — the bare bulb on a wire — is transformed into a symbol of defiance: the lamp for which the very wire has become the shade.
The lamp was created for the Reaktor association, platform for the endorsement of Croatian product design.
