An innovative twist on the classic ‘paper moon’.
The ZONE shade is hand made from two pieces of flat material, interwoven to produce a globe of light.
This fresh interpretation of the ubiquitous paper globe springs from an articulated sheet form, and bridges the gap between contemporary computer aided technological production and crafted forms of the past.
The textured, hand formed nature of the shade allows it to glow with a soft intensity, revealing subtle variations within pure geometry.
Two distinct scales are available; The Zone 12 shade, suiting an intimate domestic use as a table lamp or a minimal pendant, and the larger Zone 15 pendant with an accentuated ‘drop’ form.
The Zone shade is available in two standard sizes: Zone 12 and Zone 15.
225mm diameter x 150mm high
This version of the Zone shade suits an intimate domestic use as a table lamp or intimae pendant.
It is available as a flat-pack for self assembly, or preassembled for instant use.

The Zone shade’s name comes from its underlying geometry; a highly symmetrical, faceted polyhedron called a ‘Zonohedron’.
An early prototype of this shade appeared at 100% Design at Earl’s Court, with large-scale versions installed at the in-show restaurant.
