Pinha

Designed by Raw Edges.

Pinha

Pinha proposes a playful approach to lighting through personalization. This hanging lamp consists of a cork outer shade to which one or more ultra resistant tyvek® paper shades are fastened. You have the last word on how Pinha looks, by choosing the shade(s) from among different shapes and drawings available.

Function-wise, you can also decide on the direction and range of the light, by adjusting where the shade is pinned. 

  • Cork's low thermal and electrical conductivity ensures that you can handle the lamp shade in perfect safety.
