ION Lampshade by David Münscher for Oxique

April 20th, 2017 by Camra’s blog

Designer David Münscher has created two lampion shaped lampshades, that use principles of curved paper folding to create a thin, but rigid light object. Due to the layer structure of the 3d printing process the resulting shade has a paper like structure, that reveals itself fully when lit. The lampshade design draws its inspiration from a classic lampion shape, hence the name – ION.

During daytime the bright white, curved shape adds a clean, yet homely accent to an interior. When turned on in the evening ION illuminates the space with a warm, soft glow to the sides and a focused spot of light underneath. ION is available in two sizes and lends itself to be hung as a single lamp or in groups, forming lines or clusters.

By the use of a lamp stand the shades can also be turned into a floor or table lamp. The pendant light is 3d printed on demand in a thin nylon material. The fine layers of the printing process produce a matt finished, paper like structure. When lit the horizontal lines softly shine through and evoke the feeling of a fabric lampshade. Both, ION and the smaller ION S lampshade are now available via
