‘We are constantly looking for plugs,’ says Petrus Palmér of FUWL, saying that modern gadgetry results in people looking for sockets to power their toys. To meet this modern demand, Plug Lamp combines two functions in one: illumination and a source of energy.
The result not only facilitates access to plugs, but is simultaneously ‘changing the way people think of what a lamp can be,’ Palmér says. Since lamps are often located in accessible places, FUWL thought it logical to combine them with a socket.
The construction industry served as a source of inspiration, where similar objects are commonly used, but Plug Lamp brings the idea to offices and home environments. The base is made with moulded aluminium, while the shade if made of blown glass.
‘We are super pleased with the product,' Palmér says, 'and in our eyes it's also a beautiful thing.’
