It's simple enough to classify most light fixtures in distinctive categories such as table lamps, floor lamps, ceiling lamps and wall lights. Just try to categorize Stretch by Alain Monnens. Designed to be strung up between the floor, the ceiling and the wall, the odd illuminating object engages with interior spaces in a way that few others can claim to.
I presume that the sculpted form of the fixture is actually preset and solid, with sections of its seemingly elastic skin being pulled like a balloon in different directions from its strings. Based on these pinched and pulled apexes, each cord can be drawn and anchored on any surface by designated directions so that Stretch by Alain Monnens takes the appearance of a tensile object, positioned at the inclination of the installer.
