Paper Tiffany Lamp by PECAS

Every art history student worth his projector slides can easily recall the revolution that Tiffany lamps brought to the Art Nouveau movement in 1895. Now in 2012, PECAS presents a counter-revolution by means of T1895, a paper Tiffany lamp. Bernadita Marambio Bello reinterprets the singular care that goes into each hand-crafted sliver of glass in the Tiffany lamp, such that the responsibility of design is projected onto the lamp’s owner. T1895 is an outline print of an unrolled lamp shade, with its design very much akin to the Tiffany “Venetian” lamp produced around 1910. The black-and-white print allows its owner to dye the lampshade with his colors and personality, all the while giving that artisanal and personal quality to the piece. The design firm’s namesake, “pecas,” means “freckles” and connotes just as much individuality and reductive style that is present in its works.
