Mylamp, Pinelamp & Sheet

The simple designs can work in a variety of environments.

Three lighting products by Danish studio Madebywho are ecologically and economically friendly.

The Mylamp is a foldable cardboard desktop lamp that can work in practically any environment. ‘The idea behind the lamp was to create a piece of design that everyone can afford,’ says Hans Toft Hornemann, who founded Madebywho alongside Terkel Skou Steffensen. ‘At the same time it needed to be different in materials and fun to use.’

Meanwhile, the Pinelamp is made from a cardboard and pinewood mix. Designed with mass-production in mind, its elements are simple and easy to reproduce. ‘The wire swerves through the body and adds an organic touch,’ Toft Hornemann says.

Finally, Sheet is a minimalistic table lamp with a circular disk that contrasts the geometric angles of its supporting stand. Made from a 6mm corian plate and a 6mm MDF plate, the warm colour of the wood is softly lit by the white glow.
