The aim of Marta Bordes’ project Elastic Lights is to challenge traditional ceramics by designing an articulated system that explores the technical properties of the material and brings movement into ceramics.
In this case the system allows the lamps to rotate in order to direct the light, but as a system it could also be applied to connect and articulate ceramic pieces for different functions.
Simple geometric components linked by elastic cords reveal the function as a visual feature. The playfulness of the system invites you to manipulate the lamps and enjoy the tactility and the feeling of the pieces sliding smoothly around each other.
