Kevin Chiam – Silhouette Floor Lamp

The Silhouette Floor Lamp clinched second place at the DSTAR Design Awards (Furniture competition) 2015.


Humans have a way of connecting information together even if it comes in crumbs. Piecing the form and structural hints, we imagine and unconsciously breathe life into an object. Drawn in deeply by how the silhouette of objects can easily bring out the character, a floor lamp was done to portray how light can permeate through a space created by a “lamp shade” – recreating the classic floor lamp but with a modern twist. This provides yet another dimension for storage; be it a potted plant or a ceramic ornament.
