Designed to be a jaw-dropping centrepiece for a dining or living space, the Vekst Lamp’s intertwined steel branches create a visually striking composition, enhanced by the opal glass globe diffusers budding at the tip.
From visionary designer Simon Legald, this inspiring creation is as much sculpture as it is a functional pendant light, expertly fusing organic forms with cutting-edge lighting technology.
Simon Legald studies design at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and will graduate in the Summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological- and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects, and makes them trustworthy. In my designs I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
