SHADES is a new series of Lamps developed by acclaimed designer George Sowden. The collection comprises Suspension, Table and Floor models as well as a family of battery-powered designs suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The idea took shape in 2020 when Sowden while working on another project, discovered the extraordinary potential and ability to diffuse light through soft silicone; a non-toxic material that is easy to clean, stands up to impact and conserves its aesthetic qualities without ever showing signs of ageing. Hence the development of the design of various shapes and colours that when assembled in various ways, give life to the multiple configurations of the SHADES collection. The silicone sets the lamps apart even before you turn them on; the colours and proportions are reshaped during use, spreading soft, comfortable light.
