This project is a collaboration with local artist Li JingGuo.
An expert in working with resin, Li helped us create a series of lighting objects incorporating ready-mades in the familiar form of the Tiger Head flashlight. Originally derived from a design of the 1900’s, these basic implements are an icon of utilitarian design and a relic of the early years of Chinese industrial output.
For this project, we re-engineered the internal components with high power LED units, reflectors and heat sinks, making them suitable for decorative and task lighting.
These concepts have been integrated into private commissions. So far we have integrated the tiger-head flashlight into desk lamps, chandeliers, feature lamps, spot lamps and pendant lamps.
