DIY Geometric Lampshade
Riikka Kantinkoski, the Finnish creative behind Weekday Carnival, decided to create her own DIY project – Geometric Lampshade using metal tubing from the hardware store and the fantastic-in-its-own-right Base lamp from Nud. The result is a celebration of simplicity – one that deftly plays up the contrast between raw, organic concrete and glowing, brushed metal.
I have dreamed about those different geometric and metallic lampshades that have been very popular now, so I desided to try if I could do one without welding. I went to a hardware store and bought 4 thin and hollow metallic tube. Then I thread a twine through those tubes and made many folds to it. Finaly I tied the end´s of the twine´s so that “gadget” would stay together and placed it over the light bulb. I used Nud´s Base lamp.
