Amsterdam’s design duo Odd Matter created sculptural lighting objects using copper and Jesmonite. Based on the concept that “a lamp has an interesting transformation as it changes to deliver something which is not initially there” the Node Lights have rotating arms doubling as a switch turning on and off the electricity. An important transformation defining the nature of the object: either a sculpture or a lamp.
Odd Matter designers Els Woldhek and Georgi Manassiev explain: ‘Node’ aims at being a very direct and simple way of describing this. Through how you use it; by opening or closing the electric circuit you turn the light off and on. Inspired in shape and workings by the universal language and simplicity of drawn electrical diagrams. Creating a intuitive schematic lamp that describes its function, bares its workings.
