‘unfold’ pendant lamp by form us with love

 

 

nordic design company muuto presented two new pieces of furniture – an industry lamp and dining table – at the autumn 2010 edition of maison et objet, paris. ‘unfold’ is a pendant lamp crafted from a soft, but strong silicone rubber. the soft material allows the lamp to be folded into a neat package – just open and unfold to use. measuring 32,5 x 29,5 cm in size, ‘unfold’ is available in grey, black, blue, purple and yellow. the lamp is created by swedish design studio form us with love who has also designed muuto’s match tea light holders.

‘keep’ table by petter thörne and anders johnsson

 

 

‘keep’ is a dining table crafted from leftover materials of the furniture industry. wood blocks are arranged and held together by metal bands to form the tables. the otherwise to be discarded wood gives the tables character, making each one completely individual. the table was the winning entry in muuto’s 2009 talent award competition for design students, and is the senior project of designers petter thörne and anders johnsson from konstfack school of design in stockholm. ‘keep’ comes in various types of wood and measures: 200,0 x 92,0 x 75,0 cm. the table comes in a limited edition.

  • These lights are wonderful!
    I would almost not want to ‘Unfold’ them to give them more character. Digging the use of silicone in this application.
