Concrete
Keren Wang’s work is made up of two light fittings. Each lamp is composed of two elements: a curved concrete form and an LED light fitting. Keren has drawn inspiration from the ability of Oberhauser & Schedler to use concrete beyond its usual function, to create objects which challenge perceptions about concrete’s materiality and suggest its full potential. Concrete is considered an industrial building material, producing objects which are hard and heavy, and surfaces which are flat; these lamps show that concrete can produce fluid forms, if their maker is skillful enough. Whilst the final form expresses simplicity, the production process has required a lot of experimentation with the potential properties of concrete. The lights not only have a practical function, they also allow the user to engage further with the material, highlighting the surface details of the concrete form.
