Studio Klass sent us images of their newly completed Sleepy Lamp for Busso's 2010 collection.
The light takes its form from a gesture of sleepiness, propping itself up against the wall:
"Sleepy lamp" originates from the attention to those gestures that we often do unintentionally without giving them too much care. These gestures often delineate the human behaviour, particularly when they are related with the objects that surround us,to alter the function and using that in different ways from they have been thought from the beginning. This is the reason why we are fascinated with observing a stair, in its moment of "non-usage," when leaning onto the wall to clear the space in which we work. In "Sleepy Lamp" this particular moment is conceptually reread in a lazy and sleepy lamp that can't help resting, creating a quiet and relaxing atmosphere around it.
Its relaxed pose offers a couple advantages for the alert humans around it: offering a slanted rack to hang books and clothes over and a nice reflection of diffuse light off the wall.
