HUGO

 

The pendant lamp »Hugo« is a tribute to the classic industrial lamp and the old and largely forgotten craft of metal spinning. This project was executed in cooperation with the »Hugo Bräuer« company, that still uses the technique of metal spinning.
While rust is commonly seen as a sign of destruction and decline, it is unfortunately overseen, that rust creates an interesting variety of color, structure and surface patterns. It imparts an historical aura and creates a pleasant light. A harmonic contrast between the sheer surface of the lamp and the rustic patina inside the lamp is created, literally allowing the viewer to see rust in a new light.
