Lighting technology is surprisingly exciting these days, and the ‘Hang It On the Wall‘ lighting fixture, from designer Harry Thaler, is a lighthearted celebration of this evolving industry. The lamp’s design is a response to the phasing out of the iconic Edison light bulb. While the pear-shaped form of the original bulb is still intact, the lamp’s glass fixture has been distorted to represent how things are changing.
The lamp is made of borosilicate glass and a halogen bulb. The form of the dripping glass bulb is elongated with an black electrical wire, and the nail provides the bulb with the slightest tilt, further playing with the whimsical feel of the design.
The Harry Thaler studio was started in 2008, and the firm’s philosophy is to explore the world by way of reinvented objects and the juxtaposition of unexpected elegance and charm. They are committed to producing products using the highest quality of craftsmanship and aim to conjure the sensation of timelessness.
