Diffus – Dissolving the Basic Idea of the Lamp

A drawing on a napkin

The proces of designing the Diffus Lamps was to work with the basic idea of the lamp. If you would stop anyone on the street to draw at picture of lamp in 5 seconds almost everybody would draw this lamp.

As a designer I belive in creating a sense of new meaning when drawing products. But with Diffus it is much more…. diffus!

A continuation of the space

With Diffus I dont ad new meaning when designing the product – instead I work with the basic meaning of the product as everybody understand it. I take the the idea of the lamp and dissolves it into space.

The base plate is a continuation of the floor and the shade is a continuation of the base plate. You can say that I reduces the lamp to an object in space. Even the basic designprinciples of the shade is dissolved. The distance between the disks are positioned according to the golden ratio made by Fibonacci, but at the point of the golden ration there is just air. Not a disk! So your eye cant focus and the lamp becomes .. diffus.

Hence the name of the lamp.
