The MECK Ceramic Table Lamp was conceived when we got hold of a great number of antique preservation jars. We decided to combine the crude industrial process depicted in these jars with our own form language that is inspired on industrial processes and the traces they leave in the products that surround us in everyday life. A no-nonsense on/off switch completes the industrial feel of the lamp.
How Its Made
At the base of the MECK lamp lies the WECK preserva tion jar. These jars were (and still are) very commonly used to preserve perishable edibles such a s fruits and vegetables and sometimes even meat. However still applied, this preservation technique is being used less and less due to our ever shrinking world in which everything we would like to buy is just around the corner. This leaves us with a lot of jars not being used, catching dust in the basement until we throw them out. The MECK Ceramics Table Lamp measures 5 x 15 x 34 cm.
