Life is like the oil within a lamp. It can be measured, but the pace at which it burns depends on how the dial is turned day by day, how bright and fierce the flame. And there is no predicting whether the lamp might be knocked to the ground and shatter, when it could have blazed on a great while longer. Such is the unpredictability of life.
På temat Hem Ljuva Hem gör jag en tolkning till mitt föräldrahem. Ett hus med storslagen utsikt, övervuxen trädgård och en hel barndom av minnen. Här slåss min mors växter med fars loppisfynd. Här har vi en fotogenlampa min far hittat på Kommersen- Backaplan när det begav sig. 150kr fick han ge.
“I picked up this paraffin lamp in a market in Goa and it represents so much to me. The act of making something useful from something that to us may seem like waste is a craft that our rampant consumer society has all but lost. The ingenuity and patience to craft a thing of such simplicity and beauty from so little is a lesson to us all. As designers, observing how the simplest tools, brushes and vessels are made around the world reminds us all of the potential to find beauty in the everyday.” Designer Tom Lloyd of award-winning studio @PearsonLloyd on one of the objects that inspire him, to read the full feature, tap the link in bio.
