“The way the light source can be adjusted is inspired by the movement of our natural light sources”
Colback is a material with a very poetic appearance. The open visible fibre structure gives a tactile almost natural feeling to the material. Klaas liked these aesthetic qualities of the Colback nonwoven in contrast with the highly technical qualities of the material. Klaas set himself the goal of expressing both, the aesthetic and technical features in one series of design. Klaas' results are a series of shades which have a poetic light appearance on the front side, while the back and sides show the technical framework.
All lamp shades enable the user to play with light and the translucent qualities of Colback by adjusting the light. The way the light source can be adjusted is inspired by the movement of our natural light sources like the moon and the sun. With this project Klaas wanted to show the visible qualities of Colback and the possibilities to utilize Colback in interior settings. _ photo credits John Dijkgraaf
