Juno Brown is an object and set designer / maker, based in Amsterdam. He prefers to work with and from pre-used material. In his work he embraces and explores the ordinary and the strange; the simple and the complex; the efficient and the dis-functional.
A series of lamps made from broken fluorescent tube lights (TLs). The series makes use of these objects, having lost their original function, as a material for new designs. The old TLs are arranged and held together with laser-cut acrylic or waterjet-cut aluminium frames. Together they form a clean yet warm translucent surface, illuminated by new LED tubes. The lamps highlight the aesthetical qualities of TLs, reinstating value to this discarded material. The manufacturer’s logos are still visible, alluding to their industrial past.
The ‘Tube Lamps’ will be on show during Object Rotterdam
