Suesslicht, a sugar lamp
It seems that it is fashionable to make lamps with all kinds of food. Suesslicht is a sugar lamp, but we have previously seen chocolate lamps, with gummy bears and edible jelly. Come on, we could light the whole house with them.
With a tremendously descriptive name (süß is sweet in German, and Licht light), this lamp designed by the Voxel studio is a perfect example of interdisciplinary work, since in order to do it they had to resort to the knowledge of various sugar experts, and how some foods they have a lot more possibilities than we think.
The beauty of this lamp lies not only in the curiosity that it is made of sugar, or that we can tear off a piece to sweeten the coffee, but also in that it is at the same time a tribute to the traditional manufacture of sugar and the most industrial design. efficient.
The display is in the form in which sugar was formerly refined and sold, specifically until the late 19th century, when granulated and lump sugar was introduced. In addition, being a very thin screen, only one centimeter thick, it allows light to pass through, creating a diffuse and pleasant atmosphere.
According to its designers, using sugar as a material has brought them many advantages, as it has a stucco-like finish, a pure snow white color and the touch and sound of ceramic. To achieve this, they mixed sugar crystals with a water solution, then molded it under high pressure and dried it.
Be that as it may, I find this sugar lamp really pretty, although I would not recommend it for places where there are a lot of flies, or they will end up eating the lamp.
