Called Loom, the shades are made from a material woven in three dimensions that's normally used for bedding.
Stockholm Furniture Fair took place 8-12 February. See all our coverage of the event »
The information that follows is from Hubert:
Benjamin Hubert x Zero
Loom is a collection of organic textile pendant lamps utilising a new 3D woven polyester material designed by Benjamin Hubert for Swedish manufacturer Zero.
Originally used as a source of comfort in the bedding industry the 3D textile has never before been used in the lighting industry.
The textile can be stretched around complex forms and diffuses the light through its dense network of warp woven polyester fibers.
The Textile is offset and contrasted with a brightly lit polymer lens at the heart of each pendant.
The forms of the textile lamps reference traditional Chinese lanterns as a known reference point transformed with a new technological material.
