A lamp shade, a mask or something else... You do it yourself !

Everything started with the design of a donkey mask for a theater play. The mask got rejected by the theater crew and was useless lieing around at our office. One day Maik Perfahl and myself (Wolfgang List) had the idea to cut a whole in the top of the donkey mask and put a light through. Our first prototyp of a lamp shade was born. Since this day we always work on new products around our first design.
The lamp shades get produced by ourself in our office in Vienna. The silver pendants get designed by us and produced in Belgium. The porcelain figurines are a cooperation with the 300 year old porcelain manufacturer Augarten from Vienna.
We also work in the field of art and offer workshops to Universities and Museums around the world. With the same technic of our lamp shade designs we create huge paper sculptures.

Frequently asked questions
What kind of glue should I use for the lamp shades?

Best is to use a contact glue like UHU Power (Kraft) or Pattex Contact Glue in transparent colour. A contact glue is a glue that you put on both parts which should be glued together. You have to wait till the glue starts to dry, then you can put the parts together. You will find this kind of glue in bigger shops for paper and office products.

How long does it takes to build a lamp shade?

Large Models: 3-4 hours /
Medium Models: 2-3 hours /
Penguin and Owl: 3-4 hours

What kind of bulbsocket do I need for the LARGE MODELS (lampshade for a hanging light)?

The LARGE MODELS work with standard bulbsockets like the ones you get at Ikea.

How does the MEDIUM MODELS (lampshade for a standing light) get attached to the lampstand?

Each MEDIUM MODEL come with a METAL DISTANCE PIECE that you attach to the lightbulb. Because the lampshade gets attached to the bulb and not to the lampstand it´s possible to use every lampstand.

What kind of lightbulb is recomended?

Best is to use LED bulbs or Energy Saving bulbs but it´s also possible to use bulbs up to 60 Watt.
For the MEDIUM MODELS (lampshade for a standing light) it´s important to use bulbs with a classical form because the METAL DISTANCE PIECE that comes with the lampshade only works with a bulb in a classical form.

What kind of paper is the lampshade made of?

The lampshade is made out of 230g/m² white paper. The paper is not fire proof but also the lampshades that you buy at Ikea are not fire proof. If you use the lampshade correctly there is no risk of fire.

Where can I find the manual for the construction set?

The manual is printed onto the construction set inside the packaging.
