The subtle difference

Light + Building recently closed its doors to the public in Frankfurt/Main. Which topics are people still talking about? Here is Stylepark’s retrospective overview of the fair.
Beyond its function as a lamp, the Dipping Light seeks to excite. When it’s turned on, its different shades of paint sift the light, creating a magical ambient effect. When it’s off, its colored glass sphere is an object charged with beauty, and eye-catching design piece for a shelf, bedside, or table.
Jordi Canudas is an alchemist of light. He experiments with it, seeking always to be surprised and learn from it. He wants to capture the essence of light. With this goal in mind, the Dipping Light was created as yet another experiment - dipping a lit bulb into paint several times – with the end result of this table lamp. The various layers of paint draw concentric circles and capture the light, moderating its intensity. The paint becomes the shade, colouring and texturizing the light. A brass base is added for support. This artisanal process will make each lamp a unique and exclusive creation.
This collection starts out in two sizes and several colours: green, amber, pink, white, black and blue. Each lamp illuminates with different shades of light depending on the paint colour, creating a wide range of ambient lights that can match any décor. Through paint, Jordi Canudas turns his design into much more than form and function; the Dipping Light has a soul, and its light conveys poetry.
