A lamp made from recycled jam jars that clamp onto an adjustable oak frame, designed by industrial designer Jan Lampei, has won the Green Furniture Sweden Award.
According to the judges; ‘‘Jar Lamp’ uses recycled jam jars with their lids in a refinedly designed and iconic way. Inspired by an orchid, based on simple repeated elements of massive oiled oak, the designer Jan Lampei has made a hanging lamp full of life and expression.
‘The lamp can be configured in personal shapes and ships folded into a small package – no assembly required, only tightening of a few screws to set the hanging shape.’
Lampei was born in Germany and moved to Sweden in 2005. He recently graduated in industrial design at the School of Industrial Design.
The Second prize went to ‘A-Board’ shelf, by Tomás Schön, representing Argentina/Italy and third place went to ‘Hangaround House’ rack, by Silvia Rottenberger, Germany
The Green Furniture Award is run by Berhin Studios. The jury is made up of people from sustainable design and the furniture industry.
Outstanding sustainable design incorporates aspects such as the choice and sourcing of material, production methods, efficient use of materials and ways of disassembling and recycling.
It also means having a piece of furniture to keep and treasure – with a story to tell, that ages in a nice way, that can last beyond current trends and have the potential of becoming a classic.
The winner receives EURO500 cash and a chance to exhibit at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.
