Collection: Electric Lighting

 

 

 

The simple act of placing a candle inside a translucent hollow object could be considered the source of all lamp designs and time hasn’t changed much to our perception of what lamps should look like to be considered a lamp. It has even taken infinite detours of shapes and materials but it hasn’t changed the principle of shielding the light source from our eyes.

I consider the lantern as we know them from Asia to be the mother of all shaded lamps. Evolving from a simple and practical human consideration, it fascinates that a practical solution, securing that the cocooned candle wasn’t extinguished by wind or by rain and snow, turned out to become an icon of all lamp designs to follow. It isn’t surprising that both light and lanterns throughout Asia over time became the source and subject of endless myths, although the immediate and practical purpose to avoid the candle to extinguish, as in many examples of great design, putting it down to sheer functionality. This is where the madetostay lamps take their inspiration.
