The start of this project was a focus on light sources.
Instead of completely designing a newly shaped lamp, 'Relumine' plays on the fact that we all have to switch from old light bulbs to new energy saving light sources.

Each 'Relumine' uses two, discarded lamps, which are disassembled, sanded, newly lacquered and adapted with newer technology, before they are connected by a glass tube which holds a fluorescent tube.
By introducing a different mean of light source to the old lamps, their look and feel changes completely. They become one new unit, each with its own character.
Together these two lamps need less energy than each one in its previous life.

The project was first made for the bulb-fiction show at Gallery Klaus Engelhorn.

technical information: Relumine - lamps use T5 fluorescent tubes with 21 or 28 Watts as a light source. This generation of fluorescent tubes needs less energy, is available in a few light colours and just requires an electronic ballast and no additional starter.
