Core

“Core” is a floor lamp inspired both aesthetically and conceptually on a ice core sample. An ice core is a visual representation of the passage of time; a natural symbol, unattached to culture or human society, that universally represents the history of the Earth. It also serves as a record of moments that have characterized each era of the earth.

Assignment: Design a lamp for the IES student competition, that is interwoven with time and memory.
