Inspired by the bent tubing around local street signs, design duo kaschkasch have created a family of table and floor lamps sharing the same arched silhouette. The light source comes from a tilting circular disc, which can be adjusted to create both an indirect ambient and direct task light beam. The lamp body is crafted from powder coated die cast aluminium and steel, and the light source is an injection moulded polycarbonate opalescent lens that conceals a flat panel of light. Both lamp designs are available in different colours and are suitable for a variety of private and corporate settings.
Design studio kaschkasch was founded in 2011 by florian kallus and sebastian schneider. the duo works in furniture, lighting design and art direction for several national and international clients.
Being a duo, collaboration is a crucial aspect of kaschkasch's work. discussion is key. kaschkasch approaches design as a helpful and practical component of life that conveys character and attitudes through the expressiveness of restraint. basing themselves on this approach to design, kaschkasch wields a characteristic formal language that is inherently present in each design: it is a symbiosis of straightforwardness and beauty that toes the line between function and formal severity. the results are modest, challenging, intelligent and logical
