Unit 24 / PROTOTYPE 2009
UNIT 24 is a folded sheetmetal suspension lamp. With a nod to traditional pleated fabric lampshades, UNIT 24 engages light and shadow, exploring layering and tension to create a sense of volume from a thin surface. The folded sheetmetal shade allows light to bounce through the layers, creating a sense of translucency from a completely opaque material. The lamp has a strong yet familiar and understated character, thanks to its subtle colours and finishes. Both the polished metal and and matte white shades provide a soft glow.
