Through the globalisation and the continuously growing possibilities through the internet, among other things, most of people are in motion all the time and their interests and loyalty do not remain in the same space or with one product for long. This zeitgeist arises from the Trash Me table lamp, which was designed by the American designer Victor Vetterlein for &Tradition in the year 2010.
The concept behind the Trash Me lamp is transience. Victor Vetterlein calculated into his design of his lamp that most products are less interesting to their owners after a short while and accordingly are transient.
The design of Trash Me is the humorous confrontation with this transience and the short lifespan of things. The Trash Me lamp consists of paper pulp, which is sprayed on the surface of the form and dries there. Both halves of the lamp's body are fixed to each other and include the necessary electronics as well as the lighting. Trash Me can be taken apart easily and divided into its individual parts. If the lamp stops interesting its owner, one can use its parts in a different way or recycle them so that they can become something new.
