Far from the common cliché of garden gnome aesthetics Kilian Schindler explores the peculiarities of german allotments. Doing so he composes rarely or casually perceived aspects into products that affect the
beholder in both familiar and strange ways at the same time. Extracting well-known elements from their usual context and rearranging them like a collage extends their means of use to private room scenarios.
The room-filling design of this lamp stresses the characteristic interplay of proportions to be found in an allotment garden. The positioning and shape of the shade are reminiscent of the archetypal ceiling lamp of a German living room, while the simple wood and steel pipe push fitting for the legs is similar to the construction used for outdoor seating areas, pergolas and gazebos.
