    MONO Lamp Captures iconic TV test

    MONO Lamp Captures iconic TV test
    Gear  /  Gadget
    MONO Lamp by designer Simon Forgacs. It was inspired by his childhood fascination of TV test cards. Currently it is funding on the indiegogo.
    "As a child, I was fascinated by how cool test cards looked on the TV screen. The strange geometrical shapes, vivid colours, and the fact that they lived inside the same box where Star Wars and Back to the Future did, mesmerised me every time. It made no sense at all, but I still loved it.
    This was a time before the Internet or computer games, a time when TV was the ultimate symbol of technology at my fingertips. Looking at a test card was like looking under the hood of a complex machine. With time test cards became a symbol of a dominant era of TV history and I wanted to capture some of it in a symbolic object, this is how MONO LAMP was born
