Concept

The Blasted lamp is cut out of one single piece of wood to make as clean and simple a shape as possible. There’s no cutting or gluing the wood together. The glass-blasted treatment of the wood is where the lamp takes its name from. Kai Linke was also thinking about what a flying branch would look like if it could be suspended in the air. He wanted to explore unexpected gravity. Can wood find a balance where normally no balance exists? The result is an asymmetrical pendant lamp which functions equally well as a standing lamp.

& in the words of Kai Linke: "Design can irritate the normal ways of thinking and can wake us up and change our accepted customs."
