3D Lampshade with Paper Appearance
The Phrena lampshade, by Karl Zahn for Artecnica, transforms from a flat object into a three-dimensional lampshade that distributes light perfectly throughout the room. A few buttons that are easy to do up hold the folded-up shade in shape.
Variable Light Distribution
The lampshade lies around the lightbulb so lightly, like a book being opened, and when folded up makes a perfect symmetrical pattern. A few buttons that are easy to do up hold the folded-up shade in shape. The lampshade can be hung up so that light is emitted upwards. If you turn over the shade, the light is accordingly distributed in the opposing direction.
Paper Lamp for Hanging or Standing
Phrena is made from Tyvek, a paper fleece-like fibre textile made from flashspun polyethylene fibres, which drapes the heat-blocking cone on the inside of the lamp.
The Phrena lampshade can be used both as a pendant lamp and floor lamp.
