12. TABLE LAMP BY STUDIO MARKUNPOIKA
Tuomas Markunpoika drew his inspiration for the series “Engineering Temporarily” from his grandmother, whose memories were gradually dissolving and fading in the grip of Alzheimer’s disease. In western culture memories are often equated with possessions; they are “kept alive” or “preserved” as if these processes were able to transform them into material items. To realize his ideas, the designer selects pieces of wooden furniture which serve as a kind of mould.
