Shades Of 3D

Pendant Lamp

Year 2015
Status: Small series

Shades Of 3D is destilat’s latest comment on a popular design theme – the reinterpretation of more or less ‘good old’ items.

Old, fabric-covered lampshades are undressed and freed from their mildew of past decades. Only their supporting structures and a vague idea of their former shapes remain. Their wire frames may have been hidden under fabrics in their respective original versions but now these structures serve a far more exposed purpose for this new design – they become aesthetic highlights.

The lampshades’ fabrics are replaced by the wire frames’ patterns of light and shadow on the surrounding walls. The lampshade’s original function as a diffuser is replaced by its new role as a shadow-caster.
