the light clamp and questions.

Jesse Visser,
Light Clamp

I became obsessed when I saw this light on the ATELIER blog last week.
Jesse was kind
enough to answer some questions when I emailed him about the specifics,
and we briefly bonded over electronic music!

(see you at Trouw next time.)
How perfect would these be over a bar / restaurant?
Go to his site to see so much more of his work...
thanks jesse.... looking forward to seeing more work!

"The Light Clamp shows us a creative and clear use of functionality. The hinge is closed by gravity and provides the llightsource with power. The orange colour make it looks like an industrial tool. The lightsource had an internal reflector for efficient downward lighting.

The light clamp? In production? Can people order it?
I produce it myself for the moment! So you can order it!
