The three sculptures »Thomas«, »Edison« and »Alva« offer an arty alternative to decorate a wall. Their eccentric shapes have been adapted from high voltage insulators. Usually, these are made out of ceramic to isolate the fixing of electrical conductors.
The wall knobs function as a wardrobe. They can be individually placed and combined with each other in many ways. Without covers, their varying the structures create dynamic shapes on the wall. Beside their ability to hang clothes and present themselves in a sculptural way on the wall, they are a product designed in addition to our lamp »Matt«. One can wrap »Matt« around the wall knobs, fixing it on the wall.

With its delicate shape, »Edison« can also function to hook a hanger. It is made out of Ash wood, which gives the technical shape an almost feminine touch.
The pieces are hand-turned by a traditional wood turner in Erzgebirge. The area is famous for handicrafts. Each piece is slightly different.
