Preliminary Lamp / lamp

Preliminary Lamp
Preliminary Lamp

The way our homes look have a similar impact on a persons identity like clothing, hairstyle and other means of expressing who we are to the outside world. Through "customisable" products the industry tries to appeal to the consumers urge to be unique, but mostly is selling empty promises. "Preliminary objects" is a collection of items found in a home, that allow the consumer to have an impact on their final look. With the help of a regular spray paint, "preliminary lamp" gets transformed, allowing the user to colour each tube of the lamp, as well as leave traces of the process in the space it is placed in.
