Simply by folding, a 0,3 mm thin copper sheet can be used to construct stable forms. This principle defines the shape and aesthetics of the Copper Lights. For precise bending, the lines have been etched halfway into the material. The sheets are then folded and assembled by hand in The Netherlands.
By reflecting its surroundings, each facet gets a different tone, from dark brown to red to orange. The material gives a warm colour to the light that shines from these delicate lamps. The three variations of the Copper Lights make them suitable for many different interior applications.
“We were intrigued by the Copper & Brass Light series ever since we presented next to David at the (almost legendary) Autofficina exhibition in 2010 in Milan. Here, David presented his Copper Lights for the first time. As a true perfectionist David developed the lamps together with a model maker until he was completely satisfied. The model maker, based in Eindhoven, still produces the lamps by hand with full dedication. That is why the lamps can be considered true art pieces. We are very proud that these amazing pendants made their entrance in the Vij5 collection in 2014.”
