Harry Thaler granduated from the Royal College of Art, Design Product in June last year taking The Conran Award with him for his pressed aluminum chair. Above he is sitting on the Barrel which he has taken a normal oil barrel and made it into a seat. This reuse of ordinary objects it an intriguing one, most noteable is the ceramic plastic cup, that seems to be very current in design.
The Pressed chair that won The Conran Award is a lightweight chair that is pressed and then folded to make a simple stackable chair, personally I like the unpressed shape as it reminds me of a person doing star jumps. Being aluminium it can be coloured easily and is recyclable.
The Jump light is one of those designs that really makes you think why it had not been done before. Being a floor lamp but with no base its a flexible pole that is put between the floor and ceiling, New York loft apartments look elsewhere, with the light part being height adjustable off one side, so its as easy to move and gives that little bit more style to a desk space.
The wall light can be a good or bad design but you never see just a light bulb on the wall, let alone one with a nail through it, Harry has in this instance put a bulb within a bulb by using a small 12V halogen bulb for the illumination and the normal glass bulb as the fixing. Cute idea.
