light volumes

delicate luminaires that catch the light
in layered loops of silk

light volumes are an edition of luminous objects for interior use. Three different sized silk loops rest in one another and are illuminated. The light gently flows into the silk and the very thin, nearly transparent fabric visually transforms into various volumes of light creating a special atmosphere. Each lamp can shine in warm white light as well as in a dedicated colour.
They give off a very even illumination that almost appears to be caught in the fabric. Suspended from the ceiling, light volumes can be used as an ambient light in front of a wall, above a table or as well as an airy room divider, whilst at the same time it can give colour to a space.
light volumes are available in six different sizes and five defined colours. As a limited edition piece, every luminaire is an unique object that will not be produced again in this combination. In the white light mode, the luminaire can be dimmed three steps down to 25% luminosity.

With every gentle breeze the characteristic flow of the silk becomes visible and little ripples float across the fabric.

due to the silk's transparency the lamps appear very light and delicate
