Switch & Light
In collaboration with Merel Karhof
Switch and light is a floor lamp resulting from a collaboration between Merel Karhof and Marc Trotereau. The idea was to merge two different concepts in one object. Indeed, the lamp is composed of two parts : a light designed by Merel and a switch invented by Marc. The two designs are sealed in a common concrete base, which is split in two. The light and its switch are then separated but still linked by a bright colored braided cable running through the object, and two concrete surfaces that are fitting perfectly together. Merel Karhof and Marc Trotereau intended with this object to bring two ideas together by designing a new one.
