FLUX by SUPERSHAPE

SUPERSHAPE er et dansk designfirma med base i det århusianske designfælleskab LYNfabrikken.

Jonas Klein er manden bag, og han har også designet den skulpturelle lampe FLUX, som er et eksempel på den systematiske brug af simple geometriske former, der kendetegner hans designs. Han arbejder meget med plexiglas, og lader ofte simple mønstre vokse sig større, for til sidst at udmunde i et endeligt fuldendt design.

FLUX

Lampen er en ekspressiv gulvlampe som udforsker grænsen mellem praktisk objekt, og skulpturelt udtryk. Den har 136 laserskårne blanke moduler, som bliver samlet til en samlet lampe. Lampen kan samles på flere forskellige måder, og giver dermed brugeren mulighed for forskellige udtryk

FLUX by SUPERSHAPE - in english

Supershape and Jonas Klein: The key koncepts of Supershapes design are form and function, and the approach is to make the two come together. Lamps, light and furniture are the results. By working with shapes and colors Jonas Klein creates designs, in which simplicity and details brings the results to a complex level. The design is characterized in classic, minimalistic yet futuristic lines. Supershape is part of the design collective LYNfabrikken in Aarhus. Flux: Flux is the name of a floor lamp/light sculpture that explores the boundaries between practical object and sculptural expression. The lamp consists of 136 white high-gloss modules that are assembled into a single unit. The individual elements are cut using laser technology, and then the finished product is assembled by hand. The lamp design reflects a desire to make a lamp that is constructed from a large number of modules while still maintaining a very simple expression. Jonas Kleins fascination with mathematical formulas and shapes – in this case hexagons – provides an additional element in the basis of the product. The lamp holds many possibilities in its construction, which with few limitations forms the basis for a vast number of mathematical structures. Jonas Klein b. 1973, Danish Designer Jonas Klein has a great pasion for simply shapes, mathematics, and things that can become systematic. He has worked extensively with plexiglas and for ‘pure’ shapes: triangles, rectangles, hexagons, circles or ellipses. His works are characterised by a simplicity that springs from a primary idea about function. Jonas Klein often begins with a pattern, a system or a particular shape that gradually, and in part unconsciously, develops and takes shape, eventually becoming a design that evolves through his work with various prototypes. www.supershape.org
