Made from 32 paper fins that are slotted together to make an elegant and lightweight silhouette, the Beam table lamp from British brand Lane is a contemporary take on the classic concertina form.
With each fin made from four sheets of paper bonded together to make a thick card, the paper is made by one of the oldest mills in the UK. “We want to make beautiful products that are an investment in the craftspeople and communities around us,” explains Lane’s creative director Oliver Wood. “In a world of cheap imports, we think this is the future of British design.”
Launched in four colourways — and soon to be available in different sizes and shapes — it comes in black, grey and yellow, grey and white and blue and yellow. A recyclable and sustainable product it retails for £120 ($260) and ships to Australia for £40 ($85). An LED bulb and standard light fitting is also provided. It’s not cheap for the aforementioned reasons but it’s certainly unique!
A follow-up product to the highly successful Twin Tone Lampshade, which has been featured in almost every British interiors magazine and national newspaper, it’s safe to say the Beam is a knockout!
