In the navy: Sway Lights by David Derksen

Sway Light by David Derksen is an ultra light paper lampshades balance on small heavy bases. Inspired by kites and sails, the lights oscillate when you walk by or give them a little push. A breeze will let it sway gently. The paper lampshades owe their structure to different ways of pleating. Each of the three models is based on a different way of folding thereby giving each it’s own character.

David Derksen graduated in 2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven and completed his MSc degree in 2011 at Industrial Design TU Delft. The studio is based in Rotterdam. In 2015, David Derksen was selected for the Young Designer Award, as part of the Dutch Design Awards.
