Typically, ceramics have a reputation of being fragile, heavy and just a little more serious. Designer Marta Bordes is shattering that reputation with Elastic Lights, a collection of ceramic lamps that are meant to be touched, moved and played with. Heavier geometric ceramic pieces are held together by colorful and fun elastic cords. The lamp easy nature invites the user to interact and move the pieces, so that anyone can enjoy the tactile nature of their design, they remind some fun toy or accessory more than a lamp. The unique approachability of Elastic Lights aims to get rid of the untouchable nature of ceramics—to bring more movement into ceramics and add a fresh, playful touch.
