Sand Lamp by Alien and Monkey

Sand Lamp by Alien and Monkey


Barcelona-based Alien and Monkey describe themselves as the makers of ‘stories and objects’, being the collective practice of  illustrator Daishu Ma and product designer Marc Nicolau.

Their development of a method to cast sand has driven the direction of many products that have emerged out of their studio in the past few years, the latest manifestation being the ‘ephemeral’ Sand Lamp. While durable enough to last for years, wear and tear will mean over time, the lamp will slowly disintegrate back into sand, but not without the pleasing transformations erosion brings to its form and brief life as an sculpted object.

Alien and Monkey’s sand products are available through their site: alienandmonkey.com
