Luminaire: Custom

The rubber factory of Värnamo, Sweden, was once the towns largest employer but had after the shutdown in similar ways to the pressed glass been forgotten.
After several years of neglect the building itself had become somewhat of an eyesore to the inhabitants of Värnamo.
An idea was born, an idea to create a dynamic platform that would offer culture, education and entrepreneurial guidance.

Thus came the idea of ”Relight”, an art installation consisting of nearly 250 pcs. of old pressed glasses that no one found to be interesting.
The idea was instead to revitalize these lamp cups, embedding them with new content and meaning.
Together they would no longer be forgotten, but form a unity and a light sculpture in form of a chandelier in the foyer of Gummifabriken.

The chandelier measures some Ø225 cm and mixes simple, but at the same time refined, glasses which where meticulously placed and aligned depending on their different sizes, shapes, patterns and colours.
