The Sticklight gives you a kind of identity
Not entirely coincidentally, this poetic context fits into Thor's way of thinking. His idea of the Sticklight emerged from this. It is light-specific: light creates different moments and moods; intimacy, atmosphere, tranquility, space and possibilities. And it tells a story. After all, a crackling campfire tells a story of coming together. The bright light of a flashlight tells a story of discovery and adventure. The soft glow of a candle-lit room tells a story of romance. 'The interesting thing about the Sticklight
is that everyone uses it in their own way. You can swing it low near the ground, hold it in your hand like a torch, stick it into the ground, use bright or soft light. The Sticklight gives you a kind of identity. You get to tell your own story. How do you use the Sticklight? Where do you take it? Are you going to explore something? Have an adventure? That's how, as a user, you enter into a relationship with your environment. And that's my ultimate goal. I want to make people bewildered by the world we live in. I want to remind people that they can experience something beautiful every day by looking at what is right in front of them.'
What if we could make the ordinary extraordinary?
Much of Thor's inspiration comes from his own search for ways to make the world a little more extraordinary. "I look at my surroundings from a different perspective and often think: What if I could make this place even more exciting, even more fantastic? For example, if we could climb this tree now, the view might be much better. Or how cool would it be if we could see a 360 degree rainbow, right here, right now? From that thought, I made the Canopy Stairs and the Rainbow Machine. But it could also be a creek where you think 'if only I had a chair with adjustable legs so I could sit in the middle of that creek. Wouldn't that be great?' Or if I had a swing here now, we have the best place to swing. That thought resulted in the Swing. This thought process does not always produce commercial products, but rather installations, narratives, that translate my view of the world, my individual experience.'
Fusion between minimalism and atmosphere
An aluminum tube and an LED bulb. That's all the first prototype was. But it didn't need to be more than that. The Sticklight is a fusion between minimalism and atmosphere. With its three light modes, you bring lighting and atmosphere wherever and whenever you want. In the garden, on the patio or on the terrace. On the road: on an adventure in the woods, on the beach or in the park. But also at home: with the wall holder and floor holder you can place the Sticklight
wherever you want. In the study, as a nightlight next to the bed, in the conservatory or in the kitchen. With its minimalist design, the Sticklight fits into any environment. Or, in Thor's words: you define your story.
