Fascinated by timeless design, designer Jaume Ramírez is interested in the archetypal table lamp in which a lampshade distributes light in all directions. This is the starting point from which he reflects and experiments to propose a new glass design, with more streamlined shapes. The Fragile lamp is a mix of geometric shapes. A cone and a sphere are arranged to hold a cylinder that emits ambient light from below. In its form, we find remnants of the past; in the material, we find emotion.
The glass not only reveals the light source; it also speaks of purity, lightness and how this design blends in with its surroundings. Its structure seems to stand effortlessly, a very serious feat in which everything is in plain sight. The cylinder shades its warm, diffused and gradual light. Fragile synthesises past and present. It brings to mind hallmarks of the past such as oil lamps, which also illuminate from the bottom up, or candles; however, its designer uses the language of glass to express the fragility of the present moment.
That is why this new design is intended to be a tribute to the table lamp. A fixture with a long history that, with the application of a material such as glass, once again surprises us with the delicacy of its forms.
