Reversible, Self-Assembly Lampshade Range

The latest collection to be launched by Gráinne Lyons is the “Glow” lightshade. “Glow” is a flat pack, reversible lightshade which have been inspired my Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes.

 “My interests lie in how construction techniques and form can combine to create structures which in essence are quite simple but make the most of visual form. Three dimensional design aims to establish harmony and order in design which generates visual excitement as its purpose. Taking this approach to my designs I am able to visualize the piece as a whole including its visual form from all angles and directions.”

 The self-assembly lightshade consists of 12 individual modules that slot together to form a 400mm sphere structure and requires no additional fittings for assembly.

 “The planar modules used, produce forms that appear complex yet have a basic underlying principle. The fabrication of my design is just as important in my projects as the end result. I aim to evoke a certain unity within my pieces to show that each individual module is important to the structure of each piece as a whole. The “Glow” lightshade was created through an exploration of a particular process rather than a predetermined outcome.” 

 Made using polypropylene, it is 100% recyclable. The white polypropylene has been treated with a coloured backing meaning that the internal surface of the light glows in colour. The coloured backing also allows the light shade to be reversible and can be changed to suit the user’s mood. 

 Material: White Polypropylene
 Internal Colours: Black, Grey, Purple, Teal and Red 
 Dimensions: 400mm diameter 
 Price: €79.95 

 All products have been made using materials which have been sourced and manufactured in Ireland and are available online through Grainne’s website
