WHAT THE FORM
Tromsø is a family of streetlamps with a clear formal language designed during a workshop at écal for Italian technology firm EWO. The design is simple due to the fact that streetlamps usually do not stand alone and have to match different urban contexts. Yet a concave pole section that frames the illuminated area makes it special to the attentive observer. To be fitted for a highly industrialized production the proposal is based on the idea of using aluminum - extrusion for the poles: Once the extrusion-tool is finalized, hundreds of meters can be produced at low costs.
The final models shown are executed in cardboard in scale 1:1.
