Laurids Gallée produces a series of curved wall lamps that are sure to add an artistic quality to the contemporary space. For the designs, he used cords that are traditionally utilized for costumes and uniforms. The main material was manufactured by M Maurer. The factory dates back to 1863. Laurids Gallée then paired the snaking silhouettes of the cords with simple, geometry-driven lights.

The curved wall lamps are a part of a project dubbed 'Passionswege.' It was run during Vienna Design Week and it paired off up-and-coming designers with traditional Austrian manufactures. The idea behind the initative was to bridge contemporary sensibilities with old-fashion production, ultimately showcasing how a brand can develop and cater its original product to the modern audience.
