About Architecture uncomfortable
Architecture uncomfortable is a Budapest based architecture workshop, founded by a few young architects in 2009.
Besides architectual design, we work on the realization of the projects in our carpenter workshop, with a leader carpenter. While taking part in the making itself, our idea of design has improved a lot.
Our main interest does not lie in the visual simplicity only, but mainly in simple methods of building (e.g. tools) , which then appear through the built objects themself. The construction will have an impact on the final object, which, – as we beleive- is much more important.
We are searching for the comfort situation by the design, that is neither more, nor less than the point, where one doesn’t lose his humanity.
Our main aspect by architectual design is not form, or function, but the situation, when one can meet the balance between himself and his environment. This balance is represented by architecture, everything else is only a consequence of it.
The design of this object is based on the colours of the beeswax crayon. We wished to combine these colours with light, and to colour space with them.
The colours appear on the wooden lampshades. The way one colours the shades, the way one colours the space.
Switch Wooden Wall Lamp:
The main concept of this design was to create a wall lamp, that is able to refer to the changes of the light and space by changing its own form.
We wanted to keep each variation as an independent form, while the simplicity of the manufacturing emphasize the purity of the material.
The lamp consists of a wooden console on the wall, and a wooden prism that sits into the console, and has five different positions. The most important for us was to keep these positions independent, but on the other hand preserve the simplicity of the method in the connection between them.
Lampshade sewn of a thin nature-colored piece of felt, with wooden brace elements.
The light gently shines through the felt, which gives the space a kind of warmness, which is the original nature of wool and felt itself.
