The Belt+Sund table lamp from Mirco Kirsch is made from a single sheet of metal. It is folded into shape by hand, with indentations indicating the pattern. Even the lamp-holder itself is precut and only needs to be folded up. Subsequently the electrical components and light fixtures are inserted, before the lamp’s folding process is finished. The assembly of the lamp only takes 5 minutes.
Aside from the folding pattern, the surface coating is of utmost importance. The tight bends of up to 180 degrees require a very withstanding finish that does not break during the folding process.
