The initial idea was based on a hand sketch. I consider a simple line very powerful for capturing a thought, and from there I took it further. I set out to achieve a rich effect of multiple lines using basic tools.
Clip – born from a concept wherein two identical padded forms are brought together at opposite angles in a tubular steel clip, which cradles them from beneath and serves not only as the support structure for this striking seating piece but also as one of its core design elements.
A large-scale object to serve as the centrepiece of the interior. It was a fascinating experience to sculpt an object out of a soft textured material. The subtle yet robust form and the combination of natural Portuguese cork and strawberry-red cushions is my personal visual statement.
“I wanted to tell the story of an ideal house, and not with words but rather with light in its most varied forms,” says Lucie Koldova. “In my haus, light played the main role, and the furniture completed the rooms – not the other way around.”’
I wanted to create an archetype of a mirror, a statue that dominates and shapes the space around it and acquires true meaning in the reflection of a man, whom it alone has the power to turn into a real human icon.
A futuristic helmet or undiscovered species of jellyfish... The tubular light source daringly penetrates the delicate, smooth body of the lamp. A passionate love affair of forms. My desire was to create a different lighting atmosphere and tell a story through an everyday object.
