Designer David Münscher has created two lampion shaped lampshades, that use principles of curved paper folding to create a thin, but rigid light object. Due to the layer structure of the 3d printing process the resulting shade has a paper like structure, that reveals itself fully when lit. The lampshade design draws its inspiration from a classic lampion shape, hence the name – ION.
During daytime the bright white, curved shape adds a clean, yet homely accent to an interior. When turned on in the evening ION illuminates the space with a warm, soft glow to the sides and a focused spot of light underneath. ION is available in two sizes and lends itself to be hung as a single lamp or in groups, forming lines or clusters.
By the use of a lamp stand the shades can also be turned into a floor or table lamp. The pendant light is 3d printed on demand in a thin nylon material. The fine layers of the printing process produce a matt finished, paper like structure. When lit the horizontal lines softly shine through and evoke the feeling of a fabric lampshade. Both, ION and the smaller ION S lampshade are now available via oxique.com
