relumine

a project where the use of a contemporary light source completely changes old lamps into something new

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 have to switch from old light bulbs to new energy saving light sources. Each relumine lamp 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 initially made for the bulb-fiction show at the Gallery Klaus Engelhorn during Vienna Design Week 2010, and are now available via Design & Art in Vienna.

Together these two lamps form a new typology of light object and need less energy than each single lamp needed in its previous life.

    information

    the 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.
