‘Shade Volume’ is a new lighting collection, a modern interpretation of the classic lampshade. By combining and deforming this familiar object, the designers create a new form and language of light.


Lampshades may appear trivial and common in our daily life but the principle of this unnoticed object is an interesting way to redefine the light around us. ‘Shade Volume’ explores the possibility of shaping a light source by creating a thin and insignificant skin around it. The objective is to create lightweight objects that can sculpt light.


Trotereau and Karhof discovered that by joining two or more lampshades a useful lighting system is formed. The system allows the designers to assemble the ‘shades’ in a myriad of different ways, creating endless variations of shapes, assembled to the requirements of the room. The structure is lightweight despite its substantial volume.
