Sisu wall light by Studio Rik ten Velden

Dezeen Showroom: Dutch design practice Studio Rik ten Velden has released the Sisu wall light, which provides ambient indirect lighting that highlights its sculptural form.

Sisu comes in three organic shapes, ranging from round to oblong, with a front cover that can be finished in rattan as well as colourful matt or mirrored acrylic.

To create the fluid shape of the lamps, Studio Rik ten Velden casts their frames in moulds using liquid resin.

These resin frames are embedded with LED lights, which emit a warm glowing light onto the wall and through the semi-translucent covers to emphasise the lamps' silhouette.

"Indirect light creates a nice silhouette around the frame and lightens up the front surface," said designer Rik ten Velden, who founded Studio Rik ten Velden.

"Sisu is not only a lamp. It is a sculpture, a mirror, a light and a decoration that brings fluidity and elegance together."

Velden describes Sisu as a "light sculpture", which can act as a statement piece in any interior space.

Multiple Sisu lamps can also be combined together to create a playful lighting composition.
