Never Finished

iF concept design award 2011

“Never finished” was inspired by the prototype of a tubular lamp. It does not include a lampshade and is meant to be unfinished. This lamp encourages the creativity of the user, who can add any type of cloth to create a lampshade and decorate it in his or her own style. Additions and changes can be made to the lamp as often as desired. Whatever is used to decorate the lamp also takes on new meaning. This ultimately takes the final decision on how the lamp should look out of the hands of the designer and gives this privilege to the user. As a result, “Never finished” can never be finished.
