Connection Clamp Lamp 4 – CCL 4

For the design of this minimalist lamp, designer Ilse Bouwens investigated material properties. The Connection Clamp Lamp 4, abbreviated as CCL 4, is the result of 2 material encounters: by clamping the flexible polypropylene lampshade into the 4 rigid aluminium tubes, a unique light object is created. The aluminium tubes, in a sense, take the lead in shaping the polypropylene.

The CCL 4 is a special mood lamp in many ways. First of all, you can hang it on the wall or use it as a standing design lamp. When the lamp is lit, a special play of colours and shapes is created. And what is also special: the CCL looks beautiful both from the front and from the back.

The technology is also remarkable. The polypropylene ‘cap’ has guides on both sides. By clicking the coloured cap into the 4 separate tubes, a connection is created through which electricity can flow. Because LED lighting operates on low voltage, the plug has a power adapter and a USB connection.
