Sustainable timber lamp shades

Sixixis in the UK are behind this fantastic curling, scrolling and rolling timber lampshade. Sixixis is three young design graduates from Falmouth College of the Arts. A lot of their work is making funky 3D bent and rolled objects out of the local en seasoned Cornish Ash.

The lampshade above, called the curly shade for obvious reasons, is a handmade work of art. The fitting has been also designed with the environment in mind, designed to use an 18watts low energy bulb which can give out the same light as a regular 100 watt bulb
