In a lesson about Art Nouveau in the 9th grade classes, we explored the theme of design and fashion. We discussed about the function of everyday objects and how the designer renews the image of the object, trying to find a balance between shape, function and technology. After these reflections it has been proposed to design a lamp with new and original shapes. Following a series of quick sketches, the students made a drawing of their lamp, writing the materials, the type of lighting and the object name (HERE you can find a previous work where we designed a chair).
Below, in addition to the students’ work, there is also the brief presentation which introduced the design of the lamp.
