- Jörg Hugo
Architect and industrial designer Jörg Hugo focuses on the relationship between materiality, form, and space. He develops research-driven techniques in the field of design and architecture by digital and analogue design methods and production techniques. One of his latest creations is the striking pendant lamp, GLASS BODY 04.
The GLASS BODY Series investigates the role of typology in design. Existing lighting typologies are decomposed, reassembled, and modified based on the interacting forces of pressure and tension during the making of hand-blown glass. GLASS BODY started as an experiment, in which a pendant luminaire is investigated as a design typology. During the manufacturing process of glass blowing, its individual parts are placed in a geometrical field of tension that generate deformation, which is caused by different material properties. The result of which is this beautifully minimal organic pendant.
