The family of Light Jars captures the light and displays it as the precious treasure it is. By placing beloved objects and trinkets in them, the lamps can literally be filled with personal meaning.
The members of the Light Jars family all have different postures and proportions, but the same neck size. The lid holding the light source resembles the power plug on the other end of the cord, considering the poetic notion of power transmission as a life-giving source.
Norwegian Designer Kristine Five Melvær investigates the subject of object communication, bridging the disciplines of product design and graphic design. She is focusing on the communicative potentials of objects as a means to create emotional bonds between object and user. By searching for the sensual essence of phenomenas, she translates these qualities into sensuous objects with a scandinavian simplicity.
Materials: Hand-turned oak, Mouth-blown glass, Textile-covered electrical cord.
