The name Yoko reveals the nature of this object: two similar yet different syllables, like the two volumes with soft outlines that intersect and complete each other, producing a light, balanced whole. Yoko revolutionizes the archetype of a table lamp, placing the light body at the bottom - rather than at the top - and an iridescent bubble on top of it. The lamp is made of polymethylacrylate with blow molding technology, which creates an object that is both light and unbreakable, functional and poetic. In choosing colors for Yoko the two Norwegian designers Anderssen & Voll were inspired by Nordic light. The transparent body is tinged with delicate shades that are barely noticeable: three gentle shades that interact with a heart of intense light.
|Materials||The base, which contains and conceals the light source, consists of two injection-molded translucent opaline polycarbonate cups.
The PMMA “bubble” at the top is achieved using an injection-blowing technique for the manufacturing of hollow items in two stages.
The initial injection process produces a semi-machined thermoplastic ovule which during the second stage is blown as air at very high pressure is introduced into a metal mold reproducing a negative of the end product; this technique is very similar to glass blowing.
