by Philippe Malouin a Montreal based designer.
Raw and unpretentious, Gridlock is a series of lamps in the style of the Brutalist movement. Gridlock feels industrial in its straightforward, platonic forms and the repetitive efficiency of the grid; however, it is assembled entirely by hand from thousands of tiny brass parts. Philippe Malouin's tribute to the industry-inspired, labour-saving dreams of modernism is paid for in toil.
All I can say is WOW!
