The multi-armed ceiling Y-socket lamp by Mathieu Mercier consists entirely of prefabricated Y lamp sockets. The work is thus in the tradition of the artist’s working method. Here too, Mercier has used existing everyday objects from the DIY store to give them a reinterpretation through a certain arrangement or installation. The lamp holders, which actually only serve the technical function of a lamp, become the actual design element here, performing both their original function and a design aspect that goes beyond it. The edition has already been quoted by numerous other artists and designers and is in various institutional collections.
