Buoy Lamps

The Buoy Lamps are part of an ongoing investigation to the aesthetics of industrial technology. The most specific, highly engineered objects take functionality to an extreme which is no longer recognisable to the layperson. The odd shapes and brilliant colours of navigational buoys could just as well be from children's toys, Christmas ornaments or giant jewellery.

Underneath the bizarre appearance, however, remains a pleasing materiality that is still comprehensible to the non-engineer upon inspection. There is a logic of balance, construction and materials that is rewarding in its simplicity and inevitability. The Buoy Lamps draw on these qualities, referencing various aspects of marine culture in their design and performance. Wooden ribs bound together by rope support central lights, balanced so that they can be jostled into different angles.
