the martell amber lamp
2010 - lamp - martell
Produced in a limited edition of 50, the Martell Amber Lamp consists of two elements. A telescopic rod in chrome-plated steel that can reach a height of 3.5metres sways almost imperceptibly a few millimetres above a blown glass ball the colour of cognac. The light projected through the glass by the telescopic rod creates concentric coloured splashes of colour over the ground, evoking the movement of cognac swirling in a glass.
I wanted to express the warm, deep, amber-coloured radiance of Martell cognac, to spark a certain fascination by suggesting multiple interpretations of this object.
