Werklicht

Rotterdam, NL

2012

Werklicht is the solution for the modern man who wants

to enjoy the comfort and convenience of working at home without dedicating any of his/her dwelling space to the purpose. In it’s standard position, Werklicht exists as a large, softly transparent lamp that spreads light evenly on the dining table below. When required it gently lowers to the floor to create a private, isolated work environment.

Werklicht is composed of 5 translucent plastic rings which allow light to pass through but obscure vision. The inner ring is attached directly to the ceiling. The outer ring is suspended from four wires.

Through a simple system of overlapping details the rings automatically stack or slide into each other as the lamp is raised and lowered.

Werklicht provides a means of retaining existing qualities of space while adding a unique aesthetic element, lighting and functional solution in one.
