Illan Pendant Lamp
by Zsuzsanna Horvath and Strips & Stripes

Zsuzsanna Horvath

Zsuzsanna Horvath and Strips & Stripes have collaborated to design a lamp made from thin laser-cut birch plywood sheets.

The idea of Illan comes from experimentation with laser cutting various materials. Translucency, flexibility and gentle movement are the distinctive features of Illan.

The simple concentric cutting pattern shapes the wood into a sculptural three-dimensional object that reacts to the movements of air, while the warm glow of light reflecting from the wooden surface combined with the ghostly movement creates a relaxing feeling.

The lamp is on the borderline between art and design, it balances functionality, aesthetics and a bit of magic that we need in our everyday lives.


This project has been longlisted in the lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
