I absolutely love the Cherries Lamp series by Nika Zupanc. In her work, Nika reinterprets everyday objects as she thematizes the role of women in the predominantly masculine world of design. The Black Cherry Lamp is a modular assembly of lamps that pays homage to every single cherry in the world blessed with a shape that is simple and mysterious at the same time.
The suspended lamp is made of blown glass bulb that is hanging on a metal tubing. The lamp is available as single cherry, twin cherries or triplets.
The Cherries lamps will be shown as part of the exhibition Silent Revolutions: Contemporary Design in Slovenia, which will be presented for the first time during London Design Festival at Tent London September 22-25, 2011. Silent Revolutions brings together more than 25 selected works in the first extensive international presentation of Slovene product design of the last two decades. more info at www.mao.si.
