Designer, scientist, abstract artist and astronaut come to mind when clicking through the vaguely worded descriptions throughout Han Koning’s website. His new Static Plastic L hanging lamp is proclaimed the way “to go BIG” by the Netherlands-based designer.

Blurring Imagination with Reality, the Static Plastic L Comes to Life Overhead
Created by hand out of PET-G and rubber, Koning’s “thermo-forced lightobject” is a large addition made for his SP-range that would be lovely above a dining or conference table, bringing to life the use of misconstrued lines that form an elongated, abstract blob that is similar to a mountain range or cumulonimbus cloud bursting with rain.
The SP series of “lightobjects” by Koning consists of a pendant, wall and floor lamp. Each of them are made by hand with the same thermo-forced PET-G plastic as the spaceship-looking Static Plastic L lamp and is, according to Koning, “given a unique height by means of the production method.” Continuing the description of the home or office lamps, they also explain how the four sizes have a horizontal contour of black trim, setting itself apart from the contrasting white glow of the bulbs within.
