Concept

While we have seen several attempts of soft light shades, InnerTube really interrogates the relationship between a material and its application. In this case, the soft and flexible rubber shade is maintained in shape by the light source itself. In effect, the black shade is stretched around the circle glass tube, creating an unusual void in its center, while diffusing a large contrasting white aura of light. Contact between the two elements is also made possible as the tube remains warm.
