Legald drew inspiration from a vintage radio’s tube amplifier, tapping into the trend for retro-industrial lighting. He explains: “One can’t always define where an idea for a new product comes from. But this time the inspiration was drawn directly from radio and hi-fi equipment. This is obvious in the design of Amp. There is something special about the round, transparent shape of a tube amplifier that I thought would translate nicely into a lamp. I opted for the same type of glass used for an hourglass, as the shape had to be curved and narrowed in. To counterbalance the delicacy of the glass, I used marble. I think that the two materials work well together.”
