‘industry’ is an upholstered pendant lamp that is lightweight and collapsible. created by swedish designer jonas wagell, it features a knock-down aluminium frame with an attached nylon diffusor, similar to a photo studio soft box. the shade is one flat piece whose two sides need to be zippered together to create the cone-like form. the light measures 80 cm in width and weights approximately three kilograms and can be outfitted with a standard 18 watt low-energy light bulb. its simple construction allows for flat-packing and cost-efficient shipping.
