Peaucellier Lamp, 2011
The Peaucellier straight-line linkage, invented in 1864, was the first linkage to turn circular motion into linear motion, overcoming an engineering conundrum of the time.
The Peaucellier Lamp, born of an appreciation of the beauty and tangibility of mechanisms, draws on the aesthetic of mechanical objects while employing the functionality that is commonly associated with them.
The ceiling hung frame and mechanism of the lamp, made from aluminium, acts as an electrical conductor for the low voltage LED bulb, enabling the lamp to maintain its clean lines uninterrupted by electrical wiring. The sand filled counterweight doubles as a handle for adjustment of the lamp’s height.
