DESCRIPTION

A bold geometrical shape meets a knitted material that’s as cozy as a favorite sweater in Knit-Wit’s floor lamp. The glowing ball of light held aloft on a trio of thin metal legs recalls traditional Chinese paper shades. With the yarn’s open texture, the lampshade both hides and reveals the source of light at its center. “We challenged the barriers of technology,” say design duo Iskos-Berlin, “and came up with something completely new.”

ABOUT THE DESIGNER: ISKOS-BERLIN

ISKOS-BERLIN

“One of the biggest challenges for a designer,” notes Boris Berlin of Iskos-Berlin, “is to create quiet objects that don’t intrude with their egocentricity, don’t compete with the surroundings or the architecture, but still carry a strong identity and are easy to recognize and remember.” With design partner Aleksej Iskos, the duo’s Copenhagen-based studio has gained international renown for its furniture, industrial and graphic design. Leningrad-born, Boris previously founded much-lauded Komplot Design, where Ukraine native Aleksej was employed as a longtime assistant. Collaborating with some of the world’s most prestigious manufacturers, Iskos-Berlin’s work has been featured in museums around the world and at both MoMA and the Danish Design Museum.

The partners say their aim is for a sharper and more precise take on design with an emphasis on delving into new technologies and materials. Likening their process to the art of storytelling, they admit that the narrative of a product may be complex but, in the end, the clearer the story is, the more likely people are to understand it. As to finding inspiration, Aleksej says it comes from everywhere. “From the beauty of nature in all its shapes, constructions and materials, to industrial processes,” he says.  “In addition to art and literature and, not least of all, meeting with interesting people.”
