Description

Design duo Iskos-Berlin went one better on their original inspiration for a hanging pendant based on the idea of a Chinese paper shade by exploring a 3D knitting technique to move away from the traditional rice paper and create a new kind of 360-degree lamp. Although centuries old, knitting easily lent itself to this latest high-tech iteration as the spherical shade distributes light evenly through the yarn's pattern, hiding the light source at the center in a cozy glow. The basic round version, available in 2 sizes, can be used alone or in clusters, either low over a table or hanging higher to light a room.

Designer

Iskos-Berlin

“One of the biggest challenges for a designer,” notes Boris Berlin of Iskos-Berlin, “is to create quiet objects that don’t intrude with their egocentricity, don’t compete with the surroundings or the architecture, but still carry a strong identity and are easy to recognize and remember.” With design partner Aleksej Iskos, the duo’s Copenhagen-based studio has gained international renown for its furniture, industrial and graphic design. Leningrad-born, Boris previously founded much-lauded Komplot Design, where Ukraine native Aleksej was employed as a longtime assistant. Collaborating with some of the world’s most prestigious manufacturers, Iskos-Berlin’s work has been featured in museums around the world and at both MoMA and the Danish Design Museum.

The partners say their aim is for a sharper and more precise take on design with an emphasis on delving into new technologies and materials. Likening their process to the art of storytelling, they admit that the narrative of a product may be complex but, in the end, the clearer the story is, the more likely people are to understand it. As to finding inspiration, Aleksej says it comes from everywhere. “From the beauty of nature in all its shapes, constructions and materials, to industrial processes,” he says.  &
