Relumine By Mischer Traxler
Relumine is a light series designed by Vienna based designer Mischer Traxler where two found lamp share one fluorescent bulb. In designer’s words, “The start of this project was a focus on light sources. Instead of completely designing a newly shaped lamp, ‘Relumine’ plays on the fact that we have to switch from old light bulbs to new energy saving light sources.
Each ‘Relumine’ uses two, discarded lamps, which are disassembled, sanded, newly lacquered and adapted with newer technology, before they are connected by a glass tube which holds a fluorescent tube. By introducing a different means of light source to the old lamps, their look and feel changes completely. They become one new unit, each with its own character. Together these two lamps need less energy than each one in its previous life.”
