The Dodeck Light series es el resultado de una serie de experimentos intentando rellenar el espacio a base de estructuras geométricas, por los diseñadores con sede en Berlín, Thomas Hiemann and Markus Dilger.
Berlin based designers Thomas Hiemann and Markus Dilger have developed Dodeck lights:
The Dodeck Light series is a result of experiments with space filling, geometric structures. Through our Studies at the University of Arts in Berlin with Prof. Burkhard Schmitz we learned a lot about basic and complex geometric structures and systems. The Dodeck Lampshade is trying to break up these geometric structures and to reconnect them, a kind of puzzle system in three-dimensional space. The formal language of the individual parts is reduced to the geometric basics, assembled it creates an interesting structure It creates decorative patterns on the ceiling and wall.
The diameter of Dodeck XL is 80 cm, of dodeck M 60 cm.
Material: cardboard 100 % wastepaper
Each Dodeck lampshade comprises die cut components, which are made from cardboard. The cardboard is 100 % wastepaper and free of hazardous materials. The lampshade is produced locally in Berlin. Each Dodeck Light is made of 3 different modules in different numbers, which are assembled.
Markus Dilger (born 1982 in Stuttgart) and Thomas Hiemann (born 1981 in Dresden), meet at their Industrial Design studies at the University of Arts in Berlin. Before they graduated in 2010, they completed successfully a number of work experiences at Art+Com, Archimedes Exhibitions and Studio 7.5. Since their first Project, that they have worked together on, at the UDK Berlin, they exhibited at ParsProToto/Museum of communication Berlin, ProCarton Congress/Frankfurt a.M., DMY International Design Festival/Berlin, ARS Electronica/Linz and Qubique/Berlin. Besides their company, they both work as Designers in Berlin for a variety of clients with main focus in furniture and lighting design as well as consumer goods and exhibitions.
"Our work is driven by hands on prototyping and manufacturing as the result of iterative draft design process. In this process we combine cutting-edge technologies, production methods, traditional craftmanship and materials, including collaborations with various partners."
