This unique lamp design reimagines the chandelier as a modern expandable form. The user easily transforms the lamp by hand. The illumination is created through warm LEDs facing both up to the ceiling and downwards. In the closed position, only 30% of the LEDs shine directly, while the rest are covered by the overlapping frame and emit an indirect, sidewards glow. As the lamp opens, more LEDs become visible, increasing the intensity as well as the distribution of light.
A product line made from one single element. It is available in circle, rectangle, and triangle forms.
