Container of light

Both a lamp and a corset, this product is a container for divine and physical light

Lamp corset is a container for energy, that of the body and electronic light.

The object is worn as a second layer of skin. It constricts its user through the sharp cold metal structure. However, its proximity to warm skin can also be interpreted as armor to shield from the external world. The corset thus serves as both female armor and a metal prison for the organs.

Made from 100% stainless steel and hand welded, Lamp corset explores the possession of both luminary products and the female body. With its dual meaning regarding protection and entrapment, this object raises societal questions regarding gender and violence. The object explores proximity can sometimes be synonymous with external control.

Reimagining the constraints of what a product is. I seek to merge the fashion and product design field into one unified realm.
