DRESS A BULB

GOODGOOD's, 2015


'Dress A Bulb' is a collection of lampshades made out of Tyvek that are available in three different shapes. They are distinguished by their innovative materiality and their traditional processing with elements from the textile industry.
'hat', 'grape' and 'shell' originate the idea to dress a 'Russian chandelier' (in Austria colloquially for a bulb hanging from the ceiling). The mounting just takes an instant: The lampshades can be put on the LED bulb and fixed by the elastic cord.
Made from classic cuts, the lampshades get their own character through the strategic use of draping and ruffles. Applied to Tyvek the result is what would never be possible with fabrics solely: The paper-like behavior of the material causes that the lampshades have an inherent stability, but can also be flat packed.
The resulting crease effect gives charme to this handmade product. Using a sewing machine, the lampshades are made by the Designer in her studio in Vienna.
