An innovative twist on the classic ‘paper moon’ shade
ZONE is a versatile lampshade, a fresh interpretation of the ubiquitous paper moon.
Each shade is hand made from two pieces of flat material, interwoven to produce a globe of light. The design bridges the gap between contemporary computer aided technological production and crafted forms of the past.
The textured, hand crafted shade glows with a soft intensity, revealing subtle variations within pure geometry.
The ZONE shade is available in two standard sizes:
The smaller ‘Zone 12’ suits an intimate domestic use as a table lamp or a minimal pendant.
The larger ‘Zone 15’ pendant is the perfect centrepiece to a room, and has a ‘teardrop’ form.
The design is closely related to that of the HALO chandelier.
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 shade is designed for a low energy E14 bulb, and is compatible with most standard lamp bases.
400mm diameter x 225mm high
The ZONE 15 is designed to work as a pendant lamp, suitable for a domestic living or dining rooms.
The shade is supplied assembled and ready to install.
Larger bespoke sizes are available on request.
The shade’s name comes from its underlying geometry; a highly symmetrical, faceted polyhedron called a ‘Zonohedron’, composed entirely of paralellograms.
An early prototype of the shade was commissioned for 100% Design at Earl’s Court, with large-scale versions installed at the in-show restaurant.
