Artificial Intelligence’s endeavor to blur the line between humans and technology has been seen as an endearing aspect across industries. A future shaped by AI seems to be dominant and looks like the only way to achieve phenomenal breakthroughs. Challenging this norm comes the latest lamp collection – ‘I’m not a robot’ – by Jaro Kose.
‘I Am Not a Robot’ realized by Kose’s studio in Amsterdam challenges the widespread use of AI in the design world. Kose believes that the human touch has an upper edge in infiltrating creativity with passion and emotions. The designer replicates it in these hand-welded lamps where each piece of the collection has individualistic characteristics.
The collection of lighting fixtures – designed to discover the difference between human and robot-made products – is handmade from recycled PLA filament that is bent and welded, using a heating mechanism akin to that used in 3D printing.
The lamps are made up of sculptural objects with a rare touch of accuracy and perfection making them a work of art. Inspired by old Victorian lights, the three different versions of lamps spell out human creativity at its core. Two table lamps are accompanied by an intricately designed flamboyant chandelier.
These lamps are a true representation of craftsmanship embracing the creativity and flaws that come with the process of building masterpieces by hand. Indispensable human values can make each design process unique.
Jaro Kose with his ‘I Am Not a Robot’ collection propounds the idea of AI being capable of boosting novel ideas or automating tedious tasks, but however lacks the ability to connect with the emotional complexity of designers. After all, designers are not robots!
