Post Image

In the realm of lighting design, Copenhagen-based duo Daydreaming Objects unveils their innovative Soft Solids collection, marrying reclaimed vintage lamp bases with sustainable wax shades. This self-initiated project by lighting designer Ruta Palionyte and architect Ieva Baranauskaite of Daydreaming Objects exudes a blend of creativity and eco-consciousness, epitomizing their prowess as an art design studio.

The Soft Solids collection spotlights the inherent renewability and light-diffusing properties of wax, offering a refreshing take on lighting fixtures. Palionyte and Baranauskaite’s meticulous attention to detail shines through as they meticulously blend soy wax and stearin, opting for sustainability over conventional paraffin. This conscious choice not only enhances the shades’ durability and strength but also contributes to a softer, more organic ambiance.

Driven by a reverence for nature’s transformative qualities, the designers craft each wax shade with precision, drawing inspiration from natural processes of growth and regeneration. Their biomorphic shapes elegantly complement the vintage lamp bases, evoking a harmonious dialogue between past and present. Through the use of computer software and 3D-printing technology, Daydreaming Objects ensures each shade is tailored to perfection, embodying the ethos of their art design studio.

The Soft Solids collection transcends mere functionality, offering a sensorial experience that transports users to serene natural landscapes. The soft hues of off-white, blue, and green evoke a sense of tranquility, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the gentle glow of these meticulously crafted luminaires.

Noteworthy among the collection is the Stem pendant light, a striking piece that merges tapered modules into a totem-like form. This dramatic fixture exemplifies Daydreaming Objects’ commitment to pushing design boundaries while maintaining functionality and aesthetic allure. LED light sources with low heat emission ensure the integrity of the wax forms, while strategic voids facilitate airflow, optimizing performance and longevity.
