Julius Lehniger’s L1 lamp is constructed on the basis of its design principle, a cube with an edge length of 40 cm, which Lehniger uses as a virtual field for his precise spatial drawings. Each piece has its own design, each shape is unique and is only produced once. The joining of borosilicate tubes at 1600C is an early industrial process that is slowly dying out.
Manfred Reuter from Berlin Wedding is one of the last laboratory glassblowers to master this laborious technique. The L1 touches mathematical models of thought such as the hypercube formally as well as aesthetics of minimal art and international style, but always eludes all attributions through its very own presence.
