The X-Teile-Lampe is a lamp with an extremely variable shape and can be changed by a specially written script. The third piece is Drehbock – it’s a combination of swiveling stools and trestle. This thing plays with the theme of the differences between people. The encounter is between equals, it shows the balance of different interests, physical differences and variable uses are combined metaphorically.
The idea came after a visit in an automated car wash. Noticing how the car wash brushes completely alter their shape from flimsy drooping hair covered rods to massive powerful beams inspired the designer to create the Dervish Lamp.
The car wash brushes go from limp, to cones, to beams. A lamp could use this whimsical feature to direct light, from a tube of light to a cone, to an open light source. The contraption, with its spinning, would produce a rather considerable amount of wind. By morphing the ever-changing car wash brushes with a ceiling fan, a new product is achieved and completely redefines ceiling fans. The piece is called Dervish, it is spinning qualities remind one of the Turkish spinning dancers going in a trance.
