The end result is a modern take on lighting that transforms cast-off lamps into installation pieces. With a laser beam-like fluorescent tube connecting them, the opposing lamps appear almost anthropomorphic, with the bulb being a visual conversation between the two.

Mischer’Traxler’s work often addresses sustainable and untapped energy, and the studio has employed solar energy in many of their pieces. As we’ve mentioned before, the two formerly turned recycled Nespresso capsules into batteries at Vienna Design Week. Mischer’traxler’s installations continue to bring awareness to alternative sources of energy through cutting-edge design pieces.
