Behind the design
The story starts in the dorm room and the need for proper lighting late at night while studying and chancing deadlines as a student.
Make shift prototypes were made up out of necessity. The paper shade made an excellent diffuser for the light, giving a lovely ambient glow. The cone shape focused the light on the task at hand and so the idea was born.
It wasn't long before Andy started refining the design. Drawing up plans and experimenting with different ways to grip the simple paper shades. Standing lamps, pendants and stunning chandeliers were produced using the same core techniques that were developed early on.
