What are lamps, except vessels for light, frames?
What happens when we turn on the power switch? A whole new atmosphere is being created at this very moment – the outer shape of the lamp vanishes, the light itself arises.
Obviously, there is a separation into two states: The object while turned of, and the light source while turned on. The basic lamp is a take on these thoughts, by being nothing more than a frame, the lamp as an object merges with the room surrounding it. But when turned on, the shape still remains the same, going from black to white. The object doesn’t vanish, it still exists.
