Exhibition in Segovia pays homage to lamp design

Exhibition in Segovia pays homage to lamp design | IE School of Architecture & Design

Whether floor, table or ceiling, lamps have captured the attention of the great masters of design throughout history - and it was this evolution of lighting design formed the central concept of an exhibition of new works by IE School of Architecture and Design’s first year design students.

The exhibition, Learning by Doing, on view at the Casa de la Moneda in Segovia until 5 February 2022, presents a journey through the diverse nature, sizes and materials of lamp design, featuring pieces made from found or everyday materials present in the home.

Each lamp has been made by students following certain rules: the pieces had to come from found or everyday materials present in the home, or from standard hardware components. The use of glue for assembly was prohibited, and the joints had to be reversible to comply with a more sustainable design approach for future reworking.

The students worked on the project in the IE University FabLab — the modern manufacturing laboratory located on the Segovia Campus — using techniques such as laser cutting, 3D printing and carpentry.
