Red Dot Design Award Winner 2018
GLIMMER Table Lamp, created by GOODO Design Studio, won 2018 Red Dot Award: Product Design. This was the second time for GOODO Design Studio to win this international design award.
GLIMMER is an exquisite bedside lamp, inspired by the childhood memory of the designer. Lantern is a symbol in the childhood memory of our generation and can arouse our emotional resonance. Moreover, lantern is a classic element in the oriental aesthetics.
GLIMMER's lampshade is made of porcelain which is a traditional Chinese material, as gentle as a jade. However, average porcelain cannot meet the process requirements of this lamp. Finally, the designer chose eggshell porcelain from Jingdezhen, the captial of porcelain. The perfect effect now is derived from a lot of tests on material strength and illumination effect and several failures.
GLIMMER's elegant silhouette demonstrates the excellent transmission of light of the lampshade made of eggshell porcelain from Jingdezhen. Light and porcelain offer fantastic visual experience. Its soft light creates a cozy and quiet atmosphere. And the leather handle with superb hand feeling, the beech base, and the porcelain lampshade are perfectly combined to possess both form and function. This lamp best interprets modern oriental aesthetics.
