Copenhagen designer Cecilie Manz has created a collection of aluminium lampshades with softly angled edges for Danish brand Lightyears.

The round Mingus shades by Cecilie Manz for Lightyears have profiles with four facets, giving them an angular appearance.

Each is composed of a matt-lacquered aluminium shade and a white or grey textile cord.

An acrylic fixture sits snuggly within the top of the lampshade, allowing a soft light to seep gently upwards onto the cord.

The lamps are available in two sizes and six colours including white, nearly black, very grey, pale moss, light celadon and dusty limestone.

The lamps are named after American jazz musician and composer Charles Mingus.
