A Lamp Capturing TV History

This is a personal project of Hungarian designer Simon. A lamp inspired by a now over 50 years old TV test card. This was a time before the Internet or computer games, a time when TV was the ultimate symbol of technology. Looking at a test card was like looking under the hood of a complex machine. With time test cards became a symbol of a dominant era of TV history and wanted to capture some of it in a symbolic object, this is how MONO LAMP was born.

It took over a year to prototype, build partnerships and eventually find the right balance between production quality, cost and scalability. Now it’s time to bring MONO LAMP to life with your help!
