Vienna Design Week Passionswege: Tomas Kral @ Mühlbauer Hutmanufaktur
Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.
Commissioned to undertake a Vienna Design Week Passionswege project with Viennese hat maker Mühlbauer Hutmanufaktur, Slovakian designer Tomas Kral focused on the visual – and in many languages linguistic – closeness of a lamp shade and cap visor to create a delightful series of hat themed table lamps.
All the lamps have a ceramic base; and the shades are created from “normal” hat making materials using “normal” hat making processes
A real fun project that made a nice diversion from many of the more serious and philosophical projects that were on display in Vienna.
