london-based industrial and product designer catherine stolarski enjoys using technical materials to articulate everyday furniture. her project entitled ‘loop’ embodies this lifestyle of experimentation. the work is a lamp shade designed to utilize the unique properties of the 3D mesh. its softly curved shape is made from one single folded piece of material floating in the air. the nylon threads inside of the barrier spread the light in multiple direction for a gentle atmosphere. as a result, this ceiling light brings softness with a balance between rigor and simplicity.
