Lamp's Story by Maxim Maximov Flaunts Unfamiliar Fixtures

By: Amelia Roblin - Published: Oct 31, 2011 • References:
When someone says "table lamp," what do you picture? A bulbous base with a flared lampshade on top? This is what most people might imagine.

Rather differently, Lamp's Story by Maxim Maximov offers an enlightening reinvention of the iconic illuminator -- or five different reinventions to be precise. Each object has a stand, a bulb and in some cases a covering, but each looks as alien to the others as it does to the archetypal light.

The first and fourth concepts are particularly intriguing in the way that they seem to balance impossibly upon asymmetrical structures. Two others reference familiar forms more closely, but incorporate eccentric additions like a card dish and a crisscrossing tubular pedestal. The one with the X-shaped base curiously brings all attention away from the light source, giving the Lamp's Story collection great diversity and idiosyncrasy.
