A delicate lampshade made of stainless steel sheet metal of merely 0,08 mm strength gives the impression of almost floating around the illuminant. When switched on, its microscopic perforation almost makes the shade look transparent while, at the same time, prevents any glare whatsoever. When Fade is switched off, the shade is opaque and effectively hides illuminant and inside fixtures.
The sophisticated hanging fixture appears to be seamlessly growing out of the body of the shade, almost like an organic extension. Each of the three styles of finish – gold plated, blackened or steel – supports the ephemeral overall impression of Fade, changing the quality of the light it gives in their own particular way.
