Cute and playful, the Project Francis Lamps offer a fun way to imbue some much needed light-heartedness into one’s home, especially after the dreary winter season. Full of quirky shapes, vibrant colors and odd mounting techniques, their whimsical presence brings a touch of magic as well. The Project Francis Lamps are so versatile, they could be strung like pendant lights, mounted as wall lights or even used as table and floor lamps.
Designed by Swedish design duo of David Ericsson and Marcus Berg, both of whom founded DMOCH, the Project Francis Lamps were purported to bring a poetic and humorous element to traditional (and perhaps even stuffy) lighting fixtures.
“We are importing poetic and humorous values in to lightings all from the very start in the process to the end of life of the objects.
The starting point of project Francis was to create lamps in spin formed aluminium. We started a collaboration with a
craftsman who still does this technique by hand. In Sweden there are today only a handfull people hwo keeps this craft alive.
The project has been to highlight the talent of the craftman by challenging him by making shapes that puts his craftmanship to the test.
After getting the shapes from Holger, hwo worked with the metal parts, we transformed the shapes by pushing and cutting them in
different ways. Trying to find unique lamps in the new shapes that where born.”
