The first CREATE BERLIN product - Get your limited edition copy for 45 Euros
19.10.2012The BERLIN UP! exhibition, taking place at the new furniture fair Qubique - Next Generation Trade Show", will be the launch event for the lampshade CRNKL! - Create Berlin's first product design edition.
The team of four designers, Flip Sellin/Coordination, Martina Zeyen/Create Berlin, Daniel Wahl/weltunit and Ulrich Merz, have developed this rather conceptual object to be available for the first time at the Qubique - Next Generation Trade Show in a limited edition of 100 pieces.
CRNKL! is not a designer lampshade in a classical sense but aims to challenge its future owner to become the designer themselves. A scarf-size piece of recyclable spunbounded fabric is decorated with a grid of 36 small magnets. These allow the users to decorate the lampshade around every existing luminaire in whatever way they chose. The only requirement is the use of luminaires with low heat emission. The rather cold light of energy saving lightbulbs is transformed into a warm, soft glow through the lampshade's fabric.
Like in every network, it is also possible to connect multiple CRNKL!s together to form a new, larger object from the sum of its parts. Long tubular lights can thus be used for illumination just as well as LED fixtures - on their own or combined in larger groups. CRNKL! works without any wiring or fixture of its own and can thus be packed in a small, delivery-friendly format.
CRNKL! comes without any wiring or fixture. Do not use any incandescent lamps or halogen lamps!
We have a few CRNKL!s left! Get yours now at CREATE BERLIN at Aufbau Haus, Moritzplatz. If you want to place your order via email, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org. Shipping costs will apply according to destination.
Limited Edition Price: 45,00 Eur.
