‘Miss Maple’ designed by Elisa Strozyk and photographed by Sebastian Neeb /// Text from the designer’s website:
pendant lamp, 85 x 85 x 35 cm
material: wooden textile, steel
The pendant lamp “Miss Maple” is showing the use of a familiar material in an unconventional way. We usually experience wood as a plain surface, but here it is broken down into a grid of triangles. This makes a flexible lampshade which can be transformed manually in three-dimensional ways.
While the lamp generates warm light at night the surface outside becomes more evident with daylight and turns the lamp into sculptural object.

“The Plumen bulb
is an eco-friendly and (yes!) attractive alternative to the
incandescent light bulb. It uses 80% less energy and lasts 8 times
longer than traditional light bulbs. It screws into any standard
bulb fitting, gives off a light that works either shaded or bare.”
