Zip Light


A simple versatile design which brings function and aesthetics together, to create a flat pack light that is simple to use and install.  Manufactured from flame retardant wool felt and a standard zip the light can be produced by hand. The consumer can choose from a wide selection of felt and zip colours. When switched on the light shines through the zip to add a contrasting detail. The zip can be partially unzipped to allow more light to escape from the base of the shade. Unzipping the light will also give more access to the light fitting making light bulb changing easier. In 2014 I exhibited this light at New Designers exhibition in London where it attracted a lot of interest.
