“OFF DUTY NO MORE” is a design celebrating that ubiquitous illumination recognized around the world--the taxi light. The re-purposing of these iconic lights as interior lamps lends a second life to a utilitarian design that is slowly being rendered obsolete. These increasingly discarded artifacts, which are a part of the design archaeology of our cities, can invoke feelings of familiarity, comfort, and safe passage in our homes.
“OFF DUTY NO MORE” lamps are fitted with led lights and consist of eight different illumination options. The metal base mimics the design of the hood of a car, and includes a switch and hardware. Each lamp is unique, and will be numbered as limited editions.
“I have always been fascinated with the universality of signage and symbols”
