Oil Lamp as a Tribute to Fire
The oil lamp Holocene No. 2 by David Chipperfield belongs to a series of fire light sources by the Swedish lighting manufacturer Wästberg. Named after the current geological epoch the Holocene, the series pays tribute to a time when mankind appreciated fire not only as a source of light, but also as an important part of life and culture.
The polished brass oil lamp has two movable plates that are polished on the inside. The brass oil lamp provides the kind of warm, soft light that can only be produced by a flame.
