MY SISTER BLISTER
MY SISTER BLISTER is the smallest object in the family working as a desk-, wall- or ceiling- lamp in private living spaces or public interiors. This eye-catcher and dwelling-amplifier is pure craftsmanship completely made by hand rom recycled blisters. The original pieces are made in small numbers and selected colors.
MY SISTER BLISTER comes in a handy gift-box and works with all standard lamps with E14 sockets up to 40 Watt. We recommend the 3 Watt LED lamp from LEDON combined a E14 converter.
MY SISTER BLISTER — PRODUCT HISTORY: Walking Chair Design Studio has been developing products for Marien Apotheke Vienna since 2003. Pharmacist Karin Simonitsch was the studio's first customer and has a distinct sense for innovative pieces. The raw material for Sister Blister is supplied by the pharmacy which assembles individualized medication for retirement homes and hospitals (specified per person, per hour of day, per week). The tablets are thereby pushed out of their packaging in an automated way, saving time and money for the public health service and institutions. This process generates a by-product — the empty blister packaging.
Made from aluminium and plastic for the pharmaceutical industry, this combination of materials poses a problem for recycling but perfect for the use with lights. Aluminium reflects the light, the translucent, often colored plastic refracts it in an ideal way so that SISTER BLISTER works wonderfully and provides a cosy and pleasant atmosphere even when "cold" sources of light are being used. The objects create a fantastic shadow theater and attract a big audience much like moths are drawn to a flame.
Sister Blister was invented in 2007 by Fidel Peugeot & Karl Emilio Pircher. Since 2008 the light objects have been shown in museums and exhibitions all around the world. In 2012 the Brain Lounge as part of CEMM-Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences was equipped with a sky of Sister Blister. In 2014 the showroom of Marien Apotheke Vienna will be filled completely with a Sister Blister installation for their 105th anniversary.
