a chair is a chair and a lamp is a lamp. "
- Dan Yeffet
Series of ambient lights designed by Dan Yeffet and Lucie Koldova.
A friend sent me these lamp images a few weeks ago. There is something about Dan's work that I find calming. A certain quiet confidence. A feeling that they should have always existed. In my quest to hunt down these lamps, I wrote to Dan Yeffet asking about his work. Dan wrote to YHBHS in response to my question on why he designs:
"At the end of the day a cup is a cup, a chair is a chair and a lamp is a lamp. It is the need to explore, to express, and to create & stimulate emotions within people. If this happens, it’s my biggest reward. I am not here to change the world, but to share my perspective with others. My work is my personal interpretation of things that surround us in our daily lives."
I'm looking forward to seeing more lamps by Dan Yeffet.
In the meantime, take a long look at his portfolio. Thanks Dan!
