KOZO lamps by David Benatan

Tel Aviv designers DEMO / design clinic have designed a series of lamps using plumbing parts.

The lamps are made of galvanised iron; the bulbs are turned on and off using a tap-like switch.

Here’s some more information from the designers:

KOZO lighting series by DEMO / design clinic - a unique design ‘with little authentic rust at the joints’. Functional light figures, designed for a wide range of indoor life scenes and atmosphere.

“With a bit of humor and a certain audacity, KOZO lamps stand as alien lighting figures, telling a new story”. KOZO lamps are made of galvanized iron parts and an original innovative (on/off) tap light switch, combined with the electronics and ceramic parts needed for it to house light bulb.

The KOZO parts come from around the world and each bares the trademarks of its origin country. The materials are left raw and alive, with little authentic rust at the joints and the marks from hand tools that were used in the assembly process

The KOZO lamps are perfectly balanced and stable. They don’t look stable, but this is part of the magic of this unique design.

About DEMO / design clinic

DEMO / design clinic - is a cooperation of 5 designers sharing a studio in Tel Aviv. 3 years ago we all studied in the same design academy and during 2008 we finally opened our studio. We mainly use readymade stuff, and try to reduce manufacturing to zero. Our basic assumption is that there are so many things at hand that everything that you need must have already been made for you, and sometimes it is “built in” another product. In our designs we search to give new life and meaning to the materials and to their use. And always keeping it on the green side.
