Kuu Lamp Small
by Kerstin Sylwan & Jenny Stefansdotter
A shade made from leftover sunscreen fabric allows the Kuu to filter light beautifully whilst being strong enough to assume a form that is both structured and purposely imperfect. Shipping flat, it eschews extraneous packaging and is assembled through a simple drawstring mechanism. Meaning "moon" in Finnish, the Kuu is complemented by a matching cable and can be used on its own or suspended with other Kuu in a celestial cluster.

The pair’s Kuu lamp, available on Hem and featuring a shade made of recycled sunscreen material, is a fine example of their work.
