About Impossible Lamp
Switch on a lamp made of wax and it should melt and disintegrate in seconds.
But due to the unique way it has been designed, the Impossible Lamp does not.
It is a lamp made of wax that works without melting.
Impossible Lamp is an experiment in form.
It looks to question the value we place on the everyday objects around us.
It is demonstrated through a simple change in form.
A transformation that turns a utilitarian single-use item (candle) into something both beautiful and everlasting (wax lamp).
Impossible Lamp is made from pure wax.
Which sits on an ultra heat-resistant template structure.
It is powered by a liquid-cooled LED bulb.
And the lamp is mounted on a premium plated cast brass two-tone satin and polished gold base.
