THE PRODUCT

The poplar is a tree that is characteristic to river banks and wetlands, producing soft white, almost knot-free wood, which needs to be felled before autumn in order to preserve its whiteness and flexibility. Using this highly abundant, popular material, pioneering designer Ferrán Freixa designed an unusual shade with an oriental, virtually Zen style, built using thin vertical strips attached to a small, circular metal rod structure. His lamp was the first winner of the Golden Delta ADI-FAD award for the best industrial design produced in Spain back in 1961.

Width 42 cm and height 25 cm.

THE MATERIAL

Lampshade made of thin wooden strips.
With plug. Electric cable length: 3 m.
