A pop of light

There are objects of desire aplenty in this year’s The Object category at the INDE.Awards and lighting up a room is Pop Lamp designed by Studio Zachary Hanna in collaboration with Mud Australia.

A pop of light

Perhaps because of its portability, its size, colours and functionality, the Pop Lamp is appropriate in any setting or room and on every table or shelf. The tactility of the smooth porcelain form presents as simple however, this belies the thought behind the design.

The Pop Lamp is designed to complement Mud Australia’s porcelain homewares range with a lighting offering and both Zachary Hanna and Mud Australia have created an object that is bound to become a best seller. 

With sustainability at its very core, the Pop Lamp was designed to be easily disassembled for repair and recycling at the end of life. The design comprises an external porcelain shell, rubber adapter and lighting module. If the porcelain is broken it can be re-cycled and the internal components can be reused, or should the lighting module fail, it can be swapped for a new one. Additionally, the lamp includes LED technology and therefore has minimal energy consumption and a long lifespan.

The production process of slip casting means that very minimal waste is created and any leftover clay can be re-used. To further reinforce its sustainability credentials, the Pop Lamp is fired using a combination of electricity generated from solar panels on the roof of Mud Australia’s production facility and green power.

Beautiful and sustainable, two words that are music to our ears and Studio Zachary Hanna in collaboration with Mud Australia has created an icon of the future.

Pop Lamp is an entry to The Object in the 2024 INDE.Awards and the category is proudly partnered by the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC).
