Play Lamp by Oliver Staiano

Project Play comprises of a series of table lamps, with each object made by a standalone machine. Aiming to create new value between object and user, honest focus and magnification is put on the manufacturing process. Geometrically simple but materially complex; their value aims to be enhanced through long term interaction with carefully select and playful material properties.
The lamp bodies are created with a magnetic rubber, founded through a blend of ferrous powder and silicone. With a magnet encased inside the head of the lamp, it is then to able to be positioned freely around the body, benefiting an engagement of playful interaction between user and object.
