TR Pendant Lamp
Rundle never knows when inspiration will strike. ÒAn idea will often form from a simple observation or noticing a problem, and IÕll keep it at the back of my mind for some time before acting on it. Once I start though, my process involves a lot of hands-on making and prototyping to understand how an object affects a spaceÓ, he says. The inspiration for the TR Bulb came from the untethered way we live today; moving often, sometimes multiple times within a year. ÒI wanted to create a high quality, technically sophisticated lamp that was, in essence, a light bulbÓ, Rundle explains. Following the success of the original TR Bulb, MENU has partnered with the London-based Rundle to diversify the range of offerings from the TR series. ÒWhen a light has such a simple form, subtle differences can create a distinctly different character. The new shiny version offers a more classical feeling to the designÓ, Rundle says.
The power of the TR Bulb is in its flexibility; it looks stylish in a variety of settings and formations, taken from space to space as people move homes or offices. So, it only made sense to widen that range, adding even more possibilities with the new shiny opal iteration. The TR Bulb fits perfectly into both MENUÕs and Tim RundleÕs aesthetic universe; Tim describes his work as Òseeking to improve the manufactured environment through elegant, technically refined solutionsÓ.
