The idea behind our Rusty lamp was to connect the natural aspect of a controlled surface rusting with modern energy saving technology in a very strong light fixture. All lamps of the Rusty range are made of cast FeCSi-steel and are extremely weather proof. In outdoor applications the special steel alloy forms a barrier layer of iron oxide (rust), which protects the material core from infiltration of dampness and oxidation essentially arresting the process. Individual deviations in form and surface are intended with the Rusty lamps.
Rusting is a natural process; type and color of the outer oxidation layer can, depending on location and influence of weather, develop differently and thereby enhance the sensual attractiveness of this lamp. Rusty lamps materialize a bit of liveliness and individuality with time.
While the appearance of the round Rusty lamps recreates harbor bollards, the Rusty Square builds a visual relation to classical Japanese garden architecture. This relationship is not by coincidence, in Japan, the cultivation and aesthetic of perishability has an especially long tradition. The Rusty 40/70, will develop an appearance unique and specific to its environment as it ages. This dynamic process is a suitable metaphor for this ancient Japanese style.
