COLMAO stems from the observation of a French press. From gestures at the hand scale, a whole set of manipulations at the body scale has been developed.
The light source is attached to the base, but you just need to pull the mast to diffuse the light or to push it to bring the rays of light together. By means of a pushbutton switch embedded in the object, the switch disappears. The light variation is possible through the handling of the object, and not through an additional apparatus. COLMAO is auto-sufficient, provided it has an electricity supply.
No matter if it is turned on or off, COLMAO evokes an array of shapes that can be interpreted with humour, nostalgia or astonishment.
