The Art of Light

Intricate, hand-crafted [i]Brussels Lamps[/i] by Jorge Pardo

The Cuban-American artist Jorge Pardo is best known for his ability to transform familiar household objects into eye-catching artworks. Often combining technology with artisanal craft, his works are a perfect synthesis of form and function.

Inspired in part by Mexican baskets, these hand-crafted lamps are a determined labor of love. Each piece requires the 3D laser-cutting of 50 PETG plastic discs, shaped in ways that allow light to shine out in different directions. The discs are then painted by hand, before being stacked around the socket and bulb and held together by three steel rods and over 150 aluminum fittings.

The result is certainly worth it – a product of unique illumination and functionality. Revolvable, suspendable, and arrestingly beautiful, the lamps are designed to illuminate in different directions, bringing light to life and adding new dimensions to the home. Exclusive to TASCHEN and limited to five subtly different designs, each in an edition of 100, these shining, living pieces of art are available individually or as a complete set of five.

Jorge Pardo has worked with TASCHEN on many projects over the years, including the joyously colorful wall panels and lamps of the Brussels store. This latest collaboration, which draws inspiration from these earlier models, began with Pardo’s tried-and-tested creative process: he captures the notion on paper and only then starts to build the first prototype in his studio. This prototype goes through as many evolutions and reinventions as it takes to produce one that seizes his fascination.

His lamps are a serendipitous meeting of technology and creativity, often regarded as strange bedfellows: the hard-edged functionality and complexity of the one seemingly at odds with the imaginative fluidity of the other. Yet when it works, the result is something special – and these remarkable, limited-edition artworks are the perfect example.

This set of five Jorge Pardo Brussels Lamps includes models #01, #05, #06, #14, and #19, each in a total edition of 100.

Each lamp is also available individually.
