Same Scale as a large chandelier.
Giving off a mixture of direct and diffused light that is completely customizable, this Zettel’z 5 lamp, designed by Ingo Maurer aims at “a blend of art, sculpture and light.” The lamp comes with 31 pre-printed sheets of Japanese notepaper featuring the designer’s drawings, along with an additional 49 blank sheets to be used as you see fit. The cards can all be clipped onto stainless steel wire cables that protrude from the top of the heat-resistant, frosted glass bulb that protects the cards from heat. I envision perhaps along with the japanese notepaper, pictures of family, pets, friends. Hang from the foyer and make a grand statement.
