GAP Lamp is inspired by the gap between the cracks, results of repeated contraction and expansion of reclaimed wood from Hanok, traditional Korean architecture.
GAP Lamp expresses the cracks in reclaimed wood of Hanok with three shades. Even users who are not familiar with the cracks in reclaimed wood of Hanok will get to know them naturally after seeing the light emanating from the lamp shade. To express the modest but stylish atmosphere of Hanok, we designed the light to emanate from the upper shade with subtle hairline texture and soft white, painted the underside of the lower shade with a dark green color inspired by the Korean traditional color and added details that can be seen from a closer look. GAP Lamp subtly blends into the user’s space and elevates the mood of the entire space.
Each piece of reclaimed wood had a distinct character, and they were all in different conditions so many things turned out to be different from what I expected while the ideas were translated into a product. That’s why we focused on the cracks — a naturally occurring process — in reclaimed wood during the process of selecting a more suitable reclaimed wood and reflected this aspect in the design. I was able to obtain reclaimed wood with beautiful cracks through active and constant communication with the maker. This helped us finish a lighting product that best represents the cracks in reclaimed wood.
It was great to see the efforts of the designer trying to reinvent old things into a modern design based on a young person’s perspective and working as a team to make improvements to make a better product. I hope we continue to grow together. It has been a grateful experience.
