LICHTENFELS
Ceiling lamp, unique, Compagnons de Vie

When flora and fauna were at rest, it was timber harvesting time. For more than two hundred and thirty winters, powerful packhorses pulled mighty trunks from the woods of the forest-owning dynasty. A gentle tug on the reins, a tender click of the tongue were all that was needed. Already these cold-blooded beasts of burden would be juggling their cargo through the icy thicket to the cutting site, unbelievably graceful and precise to the centimeter. A pulley from this age old form of transportation sits at the heart of LICHTENFELS.

LICHTENFELS touches the senses, a festival of light. The hardwood pulley softened by decades, wintertime and forest workers‘ hands. Made by man to make heavy loads much lighter, to double rope pulling forces. Cast iron, the suspension hook, chain and fitting. The power cable, curved, entwined in glinting natural rope. A toggle switch elicits and extinguishes an enigmatic light.
