Description

"A design legend released as an outdoor version… The iconic Mayday lamp was designed by Konstantin Grcic in 2000 and went on to become an iconic design piece. It's now available in an outdoor version, perfectly weather-resistant. This durable piece is made from recycled polypropylene sourced from industrial waste. No glue is used in the assembly process, so Mayday can be easily dismantled and each part can be recycled. An essential design star, the German, Konstantin Grcic, designed the Mayday wireless lamp in 2000. Awarded a "Compasso d’Oro" in 2001, Mayday has since reached icon status, and has been exhibited in the most prestigious museums (MoMA, the Pompidou centre. etc). The Mayday lamp is one of the best examples of the work of Konstantin Grcic. Like the great Achille Castiglioni, a lover of the "re-design", he redesigned a simple product, the work light, to develop it and adapt it to a domestic use. The aim: to update, adding a touch of contemporary irony. The unknown must arise from the very well-known. A fan of Formula 1 races, Grcic took inspiration from the lamps used by car mechanics : no-frills portable lamps, equipped with a hook which lets you attach them under the bonnet of a car. Grcic favours a functional approach to design: he qualifies his style as "current, feasible and concrete". The May Day lamp is emblematic of Grcic's approach : its simple and elegant design meets a selection of requirements. It can be carried, stood or hooked, the handle serving as both a roller for the cable and a hook to hang it. Fascinated by the body's position, Grcic appears to have designed this light as an extension of the arm's movement. Konstantin Grcic on Mayday: "I designed the May Day lamp as a tool. It has a practical handle which incorporates the ON/OFF switch and two points to roll up the 5 metre-long cable. A large hook on the end of the handle makes setting the lamp up where you need it easy. The large white funnel is both reflective and protective. Its smooth plastic gives off a warm light and is it powerful enough to absorb impacts. May Day isn't designed to be specific. It's pretty handy in all kinds of situations - expected or unexpected: take it into the garage to work under the old Mercedes Benz. Take it in the garden to hang it from a tree. Use it above a ladder or lying on the ground while trying to get the cat out from behind the cupboard. Children will love it in their cardboard house. I have one by my bed for late-night reading. Another is placed in front of the door to my apartment, just in case". Mayday has an industrial, fun and casual look. The hook is completely practical and decorative."""
