Sawtooth Light, 1988

The playful appearance of the so-called sawtooth light is based on the rhythmic sequence of three times the factor plus one expanding compass arc. This contour is extruded into the depth of the object, the stepping is translated over into the two naked luminaires, which then emerge as tangentially radiating. The side panels are fastened to the form by means of an open screw connection. In its simple form, this small lamp looks light and vibrant.
