March 25, 2017 - table lamp

Swiss engineer Jona Messerli has combined a flat-pack list lamp with a lattice-patterned shade done from Japanese shoji paper. 

The Sol light, that launched during IMM Cologne, was done regulating a digital slicing plotter automatic to emanate an open-weave pattern.

Its shade is done from dual layers of tear-resistant Japanese shoji paper, delivered prosaic and stretched opposite a frame. The woven settlement lets a element enhance to cover a light but ripping.

The sculptural shade – combined with Japanese engineer Isamu Noguchi’s Akari light sculptures in mind – acts as a diffuser, as good as holding a lightbulb in place. According to a designer, a paper creates an windy heat that “brings a object indoors”.

Design twin Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby have also referred behind to Noguchi’s work, with a array of paper lanterns done regulating normal Japanese methods.

By regulating LED bulbs, that are cold to a touch, Messerli is means to place Sol’s paper covering most closer to a light source. The flare is fabricated regulating magnets in a support to reason a shade in place.

Sol was nominated in IMM Cologne‘s Pure Talents Contest for rising designers. Products launched during this year’s satisfactory embody a seat collection done regulating a traditional Colombian weaving technique and an ultra-minimal light done regulating a focussed rod that can be rotated to emanate opposite effects.

Designers also denounced a new take on steam-bent furniture, a sombre puppet entertainment formed on fairytale castles and dappled terrazzo homeware.
