Some qualities of design can be transformed into the similar forms, but with different contexts of objects. This case illustrates the collection of lights, which young swedish designer David Ericsson created as his thesis project in collaboration with Carl Malmsten Workshop in Sweden. Called Carl Malmsten made me do it, the collection uses the precise woodwork in combination with leather.

The outcome is a very subtle collection, which brings us the similar shape qualities and logic as a 1950s design. There we present one table lamp from the wider collection in context with classic Serge Mouille`s Trépied lamp from 1954. Woodwork x metalwork. Contemporary pure scandinavian approach x elegant french decorative school of 1950s.
