the ore lamp

The unique tactile form of the ORE lamp allows it to be placed in multiple positions, providing a suitable lighting solution for different situations.

This lamp exploits the structural properties of felt and polypropylene to create a versatile form. Inspired by the book Cradle to Cradle by William McDonough, which discusses the idea of a circular economy; a model based on nature, where eventually everything becomes nutrients for something else. When the lamp is no longer needed, the materials can easily be split up into two types; those that can be used as nutrients for nature and those that can be recycled to be used again to create new products.
