Designer, Rémi Bouhaniche, changes the shape of the lamp into an umbrella. Not only that, but it’s a lamp with a dimmer. Instead of the lamp moving, this, the Etirement lamp, has easily adjustable intensities of light. “Based on an orgaic skin-and-bones body, the Etirement has both: a skin and a skeleton. Pulling the rod you see in the center there adjusts the light the lamp gives off. The intensity of the light lowers down and rises up according to the distortion of the fabric membrane.”
The designer of this object, Rémi Bouhaniche, calls the temporary, changing shape of the Etirement a poetic time from a daily action.
