The Liquid Light series is part of the Still Life project, where Melvær reinterprets traditional still life motives.
Liquid Light is a birch wood plate holding a glass carafe and a brass socket for a candle. When the carafe is filled with liquid and the light is lit, the carafe works as a lens that amplifies the light. The light is colored by the liquid and gives a glowing light to the dinner tables in the Scandinavian winter evenings. The object is inspired by the Cobbler’s Lamp from the 17th Century.
Materials: Birch wood, brass socket, glass.
