The Curtain-Light is a floor-lamp which uses changes in material thickness to modulate light. The lampshade itself is composed of semi-translucent fabric whose abstract form is that of a Chinese lantern. When lampshade is down, the light shines through to create a uniform atmosphere. As the shade drawn the thickness of the lampshade increases and light is concentrated to create a comfortable environment for reading.
