The video above is of spanish designer Jorge MaÃ±es’ new collection for the Madrid Design Fair, starting this Friday and runs to March 31st. Jorge’s series, called “Useless Lamps,” is a statement about longevity expectations in designing products. “Useless Lamps” is a unique project, because it’s all made of ice – well, the diffusers are all made of ice. The concept is to show a product that is designed to disappear – obviously once the lamps are turned on, the ice melts over time, and the project really no longer exists in its designed form.
Jorge is quoted regarding the design – “The same light that gives it life is slowly depleting its existence.”
