Adjustable table lamp glass.
Adjustable table lamp made of Gost glass, this project aims to emphasize the symbolic and ethereal qualities of light, through the transparency of the glass.
The subject is the light, not the lamp. The visual impact has been reduced to a minimum, while using a noble material such as glass to give life to an object between the emotional and the rational.
The components of the lamp are laboratory glassware, used for experiments and other scientific work, especially in chemistry and biology laboratories. Glass is still used in many applications because it is relatively inert, transparent, more heat resistant than plastic, and relatively easy to process into the required shape. Borosilicate glass is commonly used, also known by the trade name Pyrex, because it is more resistant to thermal stress than ordinary glass.
