Designer: Ihor Havrylenko. Project Year: 2017. Produced: Kiev, Ukraine. Material: steel, wood
SALAMP it is pendant lamp with one light source made in modern style. Stainless steel is used for creating main shape. The fastening parts (upper and lower panels) made of light wood, which has a distinct texture. Also can be made of veneer. The lower panel is stretched with linen fabric, which helps lighting become more warm and muted.
I was thinking a lot about main lamp concept an the result which have to appear before start working on this project. It is very important to imaging how your product will be realized in future. Where it will be hanging and with whom it will be connected. This way of creation helps organize thoughts truly and discard inappropriate ideas.
I wanted to invent beautiful, wise, adult lamp. As I assume, main customers will be people after 23. The main criteria for future lamp for me were: simplicity, restraint and purity. The main forming became cone and straight lines. I tried to combine these two links and to make silhouette massive and light at the same time. That is how silhouette of cone caught on a stick, appeared. I was inspired by Japanese architecture as well. For some people this wooden detail remind barrette.
A lot of things related to this project. It very much reflects my character. Therefore, when the design was finished my new important question became: what to call this lamp? When you look at the bottom of the lamp and add a little imagination, you can see the silhouette of the Planet. Lower wooden shield is visually very similar to the rings of Saturn, the sixth planet from the sun. Dark lamp housing is remind a dark space.
When I saw it, I immediately realized that I will bind the name of lamp with Saturn. That is how SALAMP was created…
Where «Sa» – Saturn.
Many tools were used for this project: autodesk 3ds max, corona render, adobe photoshop, adobe lightroom. With the help of these programs, I could easily realize my idea. Nowadays, almost all designers know a lot of programs. ut for me it is very important to draw sketches and drawings too.
This is my first job at behanse. And it is, I think, successful. People like it. My friends and family loved it too. It is important to know that you’ve done something worthwhile. Strangers write me an email and say what they like my lamp. Everybody likes its simplicity and brevity. I am very very very pleased.
I am an architect and designer. I live in Kiev, Ukraine. I work in the architectural studio. I love to chat and meet new people. Most of all I appreciate the ideas and freedom.
