Called Roofer, the design comprises a series of wire frames over which users hang modular grooved components in graduated colours.

Here are some more details from Hubert:
Roofer starts from a production brief of creating a flexible module that can create the surface of a range of shaped pendant lamp structures.
Inspired by roof tiles found in Marrakesh a single ‘tile’ is used to clad various steel frame works. This allows for different shaped lamps to be created from a single tile. The consumer can build their own lamp from a framework and selection of different coloured tiles, allowing for customisation as the end user becomes part of the design process.
The tile is manufactured from a flexible silicon polymer which both allows the module to be formed around a compound curvature framework as well as allowing some light through its translucent structure.
The selection of a polymer is also inline with the high volume production involved in this type of repetitive element scheme.
