Stine Aas – furniture and spatial designer

Stine Aas, Design, Alter Lamp for exhibition Norwegian Presence

Alter lamps are made from a flat sheet of aluminium that has been hammered against a shape to create a three dimensional shade. This creates a shifting appearance in the aluminium, introducing a human touch to the design. By altering the material by hand, something unpredictable is added to the constant starting point, making each lamp unique. Unlike in the mechanised aluminium industry that was the starting point for this project, Alter celebrates the imperfect.
