Quentin de Coster designed the ARGAND lamp as a reference to oil lamps from the eighteen century. The lamp was named after Swiss physicist Ami Argand who invented the burner with double airflow cylindrical wick in 1783.
The contemporary lamp offers the possibility to modulate the intensity of light, by referencing the mechanism of wick-lift, and replacing it with a glass tube that incorporates three LED strips.
The object is composed of a pink gold plated brass base, a LED module, and a borosilicate glass cylinder. By simply turning the knob, the mobile lighting tube is revealed or hidden.
