pure new wool
Feeler is a flexible floor lamp. The cosy tube can be used as a cuddling lamp on the floor or as light sculpture. The use of very thick woollen threads for crochet produces a distinct contrast between the association of softness and a rough look. This distinctiveness in combination with the snake-like form of Feeler brings the object to life and the bulb could likely be the eye of a friendly dweller of unknown worlds.
Feeler was first presented by Pudelskern in 2009 as part of a series of woollen objects and was then widely published with the then upcoming trend reviving handcrafts with wool as possibility for homemade creativity. Feeler is part of the permanent collection of the museum for design MKG Hamburg.
