Moulds: Old & New Lamps by Jan Plecháč & Henry Wielgus

If you are a fan of lights & design, I’m pretty sure you will be in love with these beautiful lamps by Studio Jan Plecháč & Henry Wield and called ‘MOULDS’. These beautiful lamps are made of old wooden molds used for glass blowing and the oversized bulbs remind the history of those old wooden molds.

Jan Plecháč & Henry Wielgus:

The concept of this series is based on the contrast of materials and refers to the traditional craft of crystal glass blowing into an oak mold. The fact that something so fine and pure in shape as crystal glass is formed in something so raw and fundamentally primitive as a charred glass mold fascinated us. We tried to create a light that combines the elegance of crystal with the rusticity of a wooden form clinched with iron nails. Our design reveals the harsher aspect of traditional glass making, which is hidden in the background of production. Because the integrated LED source was inserted directly into the charred mold, it creates the impression that the heat and the energy of the glass furnace remain stored inside, as well as the efforts of the Czech glassmakers.
