OUTOFSTOCK DESIGNS GEOMETRIC FELT STAMP PENDANT FOR BOLIA

Design collective Outofstock has created a heat-compressed felt lamp that merges two basic geometric shapes. Made from two pieces of industrial felt, the Stamp pendant looks like a flat disc bisecting a wide, three-dimensional cone. The pairing of these different geometries gives the lamp a notably different silhouette depending on from which angle it’s viewed. Outofstock used heat-compression to shape the two pieces of felt on either side of the lamp. They then sandwiched them together, creating a cone where the two bulging discs meet. A white blown glass diffuser sits between the two pieces of felt. It bulges slightly at the bottom, completing the outside edge of the circle when it is viewed from a certain angle. Outofstock is formed from an international group of designers: Gabriel Tan and Wendy Chua from Singapore, Gustavo Maggio from Argentina and Sebastián Alberdi from Spain.
