Laszlo Tompa at Tent London
As part of the London Design Festival, CONTEMPORIST visited the Tent London design event, where Hungarian designer Laszlo Tompa exhibited his latest work, including the Flower Lamps,
Cube Illusion, and Spiral Box.
After finishing my former work “cube illusion” I decided to design hanging lamps. Similarly to the box these lamps consist of wood turned elements. The basic lamp is a hexagonal and pentagonal pyramids that is covered with different no space matching geometric ornaments. The lamp is not transparent, it’s lighting locally, downward. Material: solid cherry wood.
The box is a simple cube, with a surface covered with no space matching geometric ornaments produced by woodturning. So beside the storage function there is originated a new, unusual, powerful abstract sculpture-looking furniture. At a first glance it’s not visible that the furniture hides a relatively large storage place inside due to the optical illusion of the ornaments. Material: solid cherry wood
