Product description

TOMORROW ISLAND/YESTERDAY ISLAND – lamps The Diomede Islands are located in the middle of the Bering Strait between Alaska and Siberia, and their awkward man-made separation inspired us. The islands are sometimes called Tomorrow Island (Big Diomede, Russian territory) and Yesterday Island (Little Diomede, U.S. territory) because the time difference between them is 20 hours, but the distance only three kilometers.


Part of Marginal Notes 2011 collection: One morning, over a cup of coffee, we decided to let go of all ideas about strategy and allow ourselves to play for a while. We all went through our notebooks and looked at the sketches in the margin – those that appear in passing, intuitively and suddenly – those that never really got the attention they deserved. We fell in love with these scribbles and embraced their odd proportions, diverse materials and lack of clever functions. Some were left for later but others were pushed further, into the physical world. Among prototypes and sketches we also developed some half–time forms; early seeds that influenced later objects. These not yet functionally defined forms acted as catalysts throughout the process. In the end it became an exhibition. Maybe it will give you some new ideas.
