Concept

This design derives its name from the production process where a metal sheet is subjected to multiple folding. This forms the basis of the design of the small Fold lamp. The Fold family of products incorporates a small table lamp, medium table lamp and standard lamp. The silhouetted form of the Fold is representative of a traditional, basic light – it even incorporates a classic braided fabric cable. This nostalgic reference to traditional lighting is made all the more potent by the modern materials and construction techniques applied in the manufacture of the lamps.
