Torn Lamp design began when Ioan Stanean, an artist and graphic designer, decided to go from the design board to the workbench to bring the objects he imagined to life. Driven by the desire to create objects that differ from mass-produced items that are made from LDF or MDF and glass, he chose to use massive wood and epoxy resin. The rest of the team soon followed him in his dream. As individuals, these people have years of experience in graphic design, green space design, landscaping, and advertising. As a team, they create pieces of furniture that are useful art objects.
Torn Lamps collection by Guideco was inspired by life-giving force of the wood sap and the way it flows through the tree branches. The light flows through the resin like lifeblood through a tree, in a tale of destruction, and rebirth. Featuring two models, you can choose between Torn Lamps Vertical or Torn Lamps Curved, they are simple yet innovative, adding contemporary touch to any interior décor.
In terms of composition, there are several contrast effects in these lamps: a quantity contrast, a quality contrast, a closed/open and empty/full contrast. The quantity contrast is made between the resin area, which is airy and precise in shape and the two areas with splinters, both visually loaded areas, clearly accentuated by light. The transparent epoxy resin is in contrast to the massive natural “warm” wood, giving its details a clear and bright perspective. The lamp is made of epoxy resin and pine wood, it comes with a 5-watt LED light bulb (ambient lighting and not for reading).
