Lamp in glazed concrete and sugartreated maplewood


Glazed concrete and sugartreated maplewood.

Prosaic is a lamp in glazed concrete. Through a research based material driven proces, the concrete becomes lightweight and mouldable by hand. The concrete is able to be glazed like ceramic without any shrinkage giving new opportunities to detail and connection with other materials.
the concrete is used both as a lampshade and a lock that holds together the wood structure that rests in a safe position. The projects combines traditional handcraft techniques with the technical aspects of concrete to challenge the designers role as inventor and manufacturer.
