Placa Lamp | Gonçalo Campos

• March 9, 2011

Portuguese designer Gonçalo Campos has recently created the Placa Lamp. The lamp shades simply placed on a wooden board. The impact that such a simple premise brings is unexpected. Besides creating a “stage” for placing other objects of interest, (effectively turning into a plinth) it provides room for the relationship between its elements to develop.

The lamps point towards the other essential element in this composition, the switch, creating a special dynamic between all of the elements. The switch is also placed on the wooden board instead of in the cord, making it a part of the lamp, and not just an appendix.

A lamp that despite it’s simplicity boasts character and highlights it’s structure and materials. Keeping this lamp to the very minimum, a base, a lampshade and a switch, makes it all the more impressive.

The base of this lamp is made in solid ash wood and the lampshade in black velvet.

Available in 1, 2 or 3 lampshade versions. Dimensions: 55x100x35cm

Placa lamp
is produced by Show Me Gallery editions, sourcing Portuguese artisan’s wisdom and experience.
