Trapets by Note Design Studio for Zero

Note Design Studio of Stockholm were inspired by a circus trapeze to create these pendent lamps with aluminium shades that appear to be draped over a wooden pole.

Designed for Swedish brand Zero, the Trapets in fact have a wooden knob attached to either end of their shades.

They house low-energy tube lights and come in two lengths.

Here's a little bit of text from the designers:


Toulouse 1859 — a young daredevil swings through the air on a wooden bar fastened to two ropes above his father’s swimming pool. That year, the curious hobby was first shown at the Cirque Napoleon in Paris, and the success was clear: the art of the trapeze was born.

Some 160 years later, Note Design Studios’ Trapets was born, with a shape born from the classic circus device. Here, the fitting’s shade rests lithely over the trapeze, spreading a pleasant light over the work station.

Trapets is equipped with T5 Eco and is available in two lengths 1400 mm and 1700 mm.

    Smart way how to bring wood back to the object milieu, hopefully the knobs are remnants from another wood processing.

    Funny that. Look just like a batten fitting on a wire suspension. Who'd have thought they were inspired by a circus.

    Trapeze or no trapeze, those knobs look silly and functionless.

    You can barely see the wood.
