Maybe Material Culture
by Thomas Rösler
The New Design University (NDU) in St. Pölten is an institution with an international reputation for high-quality education in the fields of design, technology and business. The NDU trains creative thinkers who drive forward social change and explore tomorrow’s creative practice today. Thomas Rösler created his pendant lamp in cooperation with the lighting manufacturer Lights of Vienna during the second semester of his Bachelor’s degree in “Manual & Material Culture”.
With new lighting technology, new shapes and forms of light are emerging. Since the light bulb is the only source of light that needs to be guided by a lampshade, the lampshade is also going to become a thing of the past as the light bulb becomes less of a common feature. The Maybe Material Culture project pays homage to the lampshade.
