Malmö-based product designer Ola Gillgren has sent me his new lamp called Soundless Light. Working as a sound absorber for spaces that cannot have wall mounted acoustic absorbents, the lamp has the ability to be altered and changed according to surroundings and personal taste. Brilliant.
About – Soundless light is the result of a project where I have worked with sound and sound absorbers in different forms.The construction of the lampshade is made out of loose cone shaped polyester-felt rings that easily attach on each other and are hold in place by gravity. The height and size of the lampshade is determined by how many felt rings you add. Soundless light is easy to compress and it can be stored and transported in a flat box. Soundless light is made to be as simple as possible and to be easy to install and adjust. One of the key things that I have in my mind when designing new products is to keep it as simple and as uncomplicated as possible. I think this makes the design honest and lets people see and understand the object for what it is.
