The process of folding sheet steel to achieve three -dimensional structure earned the series of Fold lights their name.
January 27th, 2010
The T1 (smallest) Fold light is manufactured from just a single sheet of steel, folded several times, with no need for additional fixings.
The resulting silhouetted form of the Fold is representative of the basic outline of a traditional light, a reference that is furthered by the addition of a classic braided fabric cable. These nostalgic references to traditional lighting are made all the more potent by the comparatively modern materials and construction techniques applied in the manufacture of the lights.
