Biscuit lamp | Modiss, Spain | 2012

When we think of porcelain what first comes to mind is, of course, dinner sets and figurines. We often forget that in thin layers, china is a great light diffuser.

Lately we’ve been designing many lamps with innovative and technological materials. By choosing porcelain we wanted to go back in time, using an ancient material and a crafty process. Caring more for warmth than shapes, thinking of imperfection as a value and not as a fault.

Enough reasons to involve our friends from Sargadelos in the project, they really know how to work with porcelain!

Lost in a Galician village, between big ovens and plaster moulds, we thought we didn’t need to find a name for our lamp. Biscuit – the name given to ceramic fired at low temperature before glazing – worked just fine.

Biscuit is family of lamps. The repetition of an organic module creates an interesting combination of lights and shadows. It is made in different sizes and shapes.
