The Sunday lamps are inspired by long, relaxing sunday breakfasts, with candles glowing in the cool Norwegian air, setting the mood.
The light source is placed in the upper part of the body, giving added focus to the detail on top. This creates a dynamic object despite the clean-cut profile. The reference to the block candle is made quite subtle. This facilitates for a wider range of associations.
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.
