Created by Andrew Ferrier, the sculptural Foundation Light takes a cue from Montréal’s brutalist architecture and modern building methods. It might look like a heavy concrete block, but this prototype lamp has a lightweight plaster build. It is designed in a way that each lamp is one-of-a-kind since each one begins as a single scored plaster block that needs to be broken for creating two parts.
Once the block is broken into two pieces, it forms the top and the base of the lamp. Both the blocks are joined by five identical powder-coated tubes that are perfectly fitted into the two separate sections. The final design looks like a steel and concrete column.
The best thing about this lighting fixture is that it’s very easy to assemble. All you need to do is simply attach the tubes into the base and the top section. The dramatic design will come to life when you illuminate the top light that effortlessly falls on the base, highlighting imperfections of the block.
We have seen so many creative lamp designs that are perfect for creating a focal point in a room. But when a lighting fixture is created to double as a sculptural artwork, it takes the whole creation to another level.
The Foundation lamp will be a perfect table or floor lamp while providing a creative lighting solution to your contemporary interior. Meanwhile, it also serves as an interesting conversation starter.
Since it is in its prototype phase, we’re not sure when the lamp will be available for purchase. However, you can find more information on the designer’s website.
