Ingo maurer translated spyre sculpture as a functional lamp Ron Arad , today in room decorating ideas we highlight Spyre sculpture of Lamp , The Spyre is a unique lamp, designed by Ron Arad for Ingo Maurer, and limited to 50 numbered copies. The concept originates and by a larger Spyre influenced sculpture. The lamp consists of five segments which can be rotated and set to direct the light. It is equipped with a warm LED technology and an integrated on / off sensor.
Ingo maurer has announced the launch of “spyre”, Edition a limited lamp designed by Ron Arad. the concept for the light of a larger sculpture is derived, for the Annenberg Court as part of the Royal Academy of Arts ‘ summer exhibition 2016. the original ‘ spyre ‘ sculpture designed Arad is a 16 metre-high structure made of weather-resistant steel that hides its internal mechanisms. each segment moves at different speeds, to ensure, that the unpredictable attitudes of the installation are never repeated. a camera is positioned at the top of the structure, on the façade of the Royal Academy live recordings on a screen channel.
“The Spyre began when I had to do a piece for a location in a city, where the sculpture would be seen from almost anywhere, because it big and Tower-like, but I wanted to see all the city and also the sculpture to enjoy their position around him, so the result was an articulated tower with a camera at the top.” In the section between each segment was a perfect tilted circle – because the circles be oval the vertical section of the pillars are inclined. All this means that there is always a continuous flowing, unbroken band from the base to the tip, regardless of acrobatic movement of four engines each with different speeds set up by. The fact that each ‘kink’ with a different speed means moves that the Spyre things are never equal. Later, it was decided that the best place for the Spyre would displayed not in one place, enjoyed views of the city, but blocked on the contrary, in a courtyard – again the sculpture will be considered, but the sculpture will have a lot to see ground – the walls of the courtyard, the movement of people, etc. -It is not boring…
In the design of Spyre of the development we some models in the Studio magnet in the joints have – “they would make great desk lamps – let us do some. No, let’s not, Ingo, please, do it. He knows so much more about lights for us. “Luckily Ingo response was immediately excited. We exchanged geometries with Ingo and his team, and we had a meeting in Milan, where we saw a very impressive proto-type of light. It’s great that the magnetic connections held Ingo, and great, that it’s a beautiful warm light, which everywhere pointed out can upwards, to themselves, etc.
The sculpture does not ‘see’ now, but it sheds some light on things. Funny thing is, the first two for the summer exhibition of the Royal Academy shipped and they are less than 100 metres from the large. ”
the design original of the same kinetic elements such as Arad’s is ingo maurer lamp consists of five segments, which can be turned on and set to direct luminance. the light is equipped with LED technology and an integrated on / off sensor. the lamp is produced in a limited edition of 50 pieces and is now at the Royal Academy store to purchase available. ‘Spyre’ will run in the London Ben Brown Fine Arts Gallery, to see as part of a new exhibition from June 22-15 September 2016.
“I feel honored, approached by my good friend Ron Arad has been a functional object to translate its iconic design for spyre”, says ingo maurer. “In fact, it was a challenge, the technical solutions, to find out, but we were very inspired by his unique lighting design. work with Ron’s concept, we turned to keep magnetic connections between the five joints of movement and versatility in the form. ”
in the process of the spyre we develop some models in the Studio with magnets in the joints made “, adds Ron Arad.” We quickly realized the concept would make great desk lights. I immediately thought of ingo and knew that his know-how and experience with light, to realize this vision, would be capable of. “
