Whilst browsing the web over the Easter break I came across the website of Tord Boontje, a Dutch designer and graduate from the Royal College of Art in London. His website shows a wide variety of various furniture pieces including chairs and tables but what especially caught my eye were the beautiful decorative lampshades.
The Garland Light collection consists of a long metal garland of flowers that is wrapped around a light bulb. The exact material of this flower lighting I can’t work out but the effect from the image is delightful.
The Midsummer Lights collection is a series of paper lamp shades. Each is made from one large single piece of paper thereby ignoring the usual practice of glueing bits together. It’s hard to believe this is the case when studying the intricate details.
The Shadow Light is a magical carousel of colour, light and dreamlike imagery. This wonderful piece seems a perfect addition to a child’s bedroom. As the light shines and the lampshade gently turns, the images on the printed acetate reflect onto the surface of the surrounding walls.
