簍燈

Lou Lamp

在光影之間,照見現代與傳統竹工藝的匯流之處。

「簍」,裝載了你我先民的生活智慧。過去台灣島上的農事和家事用具,如菜簍、魚簍,製法多是將竹材剖成長條編織成器,使用上兼具透氣、輕便、耐用且環保等優點。而在這些傳統民藝用品即將隨工業製造時代走向終點的當今,如何讓這純粹的手作文化持續閃耀光芒,即是《簍燈》的創作契機。


本作品運用竹管結構與竹編工藝技巧,結合兩竹種生成不同元件:以堅韌的孟宗竹管用製作燈座並將燈頭電線等零件隱藏其中;以細緻的桂竹竹篾編製成燈罩,並用生漆塗裝上色。燈飾上方可分離的圓盤,既是燈罩蓋也是置物盤,巧妙地讓使用者可隨心運用。保留著簍器盛物的實用本質,《簍燈》以設計將傳統用物轉化為符合現代生活的家飾配件,為空間帶來更豐富的表情、更原初的溫度。

In between the light and shade, we see the convergence of modern and traditional bamboo handicrafts.

 

A “basket” contains the everyday life wisdom of our ancestors. In the past, people in Taiwan used to weave farming and household vessels, such as vegetable basket and fish basket, with bamboo strips which were breathable, lightweight, durable and eco-friendly. At a time when these traditional utensils come to an end, exploring the way to keep the handicraft culture flourishing thus inspires the designer to make the “Lou Lamp.”

 

The designer applies the structure of a bamboo tube and the bamboo weaving techniques and combines two different components of two kinds of bamboo: the hard and robust tortoise-shell bamboo is used as the tube lamp base which conceals the bulb and wires, while the softer Makino bamboo strips are woven into a lampshade, painted with lacquer. The detachable plate at the top of the lamp is both a cover and a tray, providing multiple usages for the user. Retaining the practical quality of a container, the “Lou Lamp” transforms the traditional utensil into a modern home décor accessory, bring a rich atmosphere and a sense of originality to the domestic space.
