TUTU
ISKOS - BERLIN Tuesday 11 Jun 2013

Simple, poetic wire pendant in recycled PET fiber: Compression-moulded form felt of polyester from recycled plastic. Every shade is unique in it´s shape.

A picture from the childhood stays clear in the memory - my mother putting me to bed and covering the lamp with some cloth to deem the light down. May be it was her skirt or headscarves. And if it was not enough she threw one more over it. Later the mother of my children did the same... Very basic, straight forward and relaxed way to create a lampshade - just couple of layers of cloth over the light! TUTU lamp shade is made solely out of polyester felt, produced of fiber mainly out of recycled plastic bottles. Two preheated mats of polyester felt thermo pressed in the mould that partly controls them, partly lets them form freely - as they naturally fold, as material "wants". Cooled down felt stiffens and keeps the shape. No subsequent trimming, no wastes, no surface treatment demanded - it is ready taken out of the mould.
