The idea to design his own lamp came to Stefan Gant’s mind in his former at in Friedrichshain, Berlin. He started working meticulously and now, six years later, the effort has definitely paid off. His product design label GANTlights offers individual lamps with architectural influences in small quantities and has been awarded with the German Design Award Special 2017. “80 kilogrammes of concrete ended up in the bin because the mixture was not coherent and the material could not be used anymore,”says Stefan Gant, founder and designer of GANTlights, remembering creating his first lamp. However, that has not stopped him from following his idea. At first, he sold his designs on the online marketplace DaWanda and then founded his product design label GANTlights.
