Inspiration: Home Camping by Paula Sevilla

The deeper I delve into the world of camping, the more I discover it’s far-reaching influence. Which is especially exciting when it’s in unexpected places! Take this flashlight/lamp by Spanish product designer Paula Sevilla. Her planned collection is inspired by all the bits and pieces campers take with them on their trips. Under her gaze, Sevilla noticed how they have changed over the years to adapt to the environment: lighter, foldable, portable, weather resistant …. creating a whole new family of objects. Her series of pieces under the title Home Camping, seeks to domesticate those objects. It’s like she thinks they’ve been left out in the wild for too long! And looking at this gorgeous pendant lamp, I’d have to agree.

As Sevilla says, “By domesticating an object that was created for outdoor life, its values, materials and even its meaning have changed in order for it to fit in to its new location”.

Camping just gets cooler and cooler.
