Kassen Lifestyle Returns Truth to Materials with the Stalbe Lamp
Kassen Lifestyle has created a new and innovative lighting solution for the modern aesthetic. The Stalb Lamp is designed lighting that trends forward by combining current biomorphic design elements with the Brutalist principle of steadfast truth to materials.
The Stalb Lamp is a simple steel structure, curved to effect a soft shape while still maintaining its original color and hard edges. It stands on a cast-concrete base, also of its original color; the shade, a cube of hollowed-out, recycled plywood, is enhanced only with a satin lacquer for a slight sheen.
The Stalb Lamp utilizes the truest features of the materials – the hard and soft lines, the natural color – to create designed lighting that is at once balanced and dichotomous.
This is a lamp that’s a step ahead of current trends … It’s rooted in true modernism. That’s because the Stalb not only recycles, but it also upcyclesreadily available materials. It’s about sustainability and real creativity… Kassen Lifestyle does not make cute objects that have a half-life of five billion years, but may be out of date tomorrow.
Principal designer, Eric Fescenmeyer
