Lamp Bellflower

The project

A combination of high-tech materials such as carbon fibre, coloured glass fibre and overbraiding technique makes it possible to produce a lamp out of one piece. The LED lighting in the lamp shade gives you the feeling of sitting beneath a starlit sky. The overbraiding technique has until recently only been applied in the production of technical parts for the Airbus engines and such, but it proves to be an excellent technique for the production of interior products as well.

Committee

High-tech weaving technique with a never-ending yarn produces an almost cheerful-looking floor lamp. The LED lighting emphasises the high-tech quality, calls forth a ‘galaxy feeling’, and at the same time contrasts strikingly with the lamp’s sweet, simple shape.
