Mantle / floor light

Mantle
Mantle

Inspired by the illuminant of old gas lamps the lampshade is the characteristic design
feature of the of the extremely lightweight textile floor lamp mantle. In a vacuum forming process the luminary is made out wool jersey that can be stretched in four directions. The vacuum forming process creates a new material aesthetics – the textile structure of
extremely stretchy wool jersey is papery. The lampshade creates a warm, atmospheric light
while the light source is not directly visible. In combination the reduced design and the
natural aesthetics of the high-quality pear wood lathed foot the components are in perfect
harmony.
