WELL / light


Well is slightly inspired by traditional water wells. It takes the principle of the simple wooden handle mechanism winding of the rope and thus changing its distance or the bulbs depth inside the glass container like the bucket sinking into water. In the case of lower positions the light becomes gradient blue while in the second variant it goes from clear transparent to sanded matte.
Containers were blown into the wooden mould, drilled in upper part (handle). The handle parts are made of maple oiled wood combined with brass elements. Bulb socket is turned of brass which makes it heavier and easier going up and down in straight line.
