The lampshade called “crnkl!” is the first Design Edition of Create Berlin, the berlin designers network.
CRNKL! is not a designer lampshade in classical means, but aims to animate you as a future owner to become part of the design process. A scarf-sized piece of recyclable spun-bound p.p. fabric is fitted with a grid of 36 small nd magnets. These allow the draping of the lampshade around every existing luminaire in whatever way you chose with a charming click!. The only requirement is the use of bulbs with low heat emission. The rather cold light of energy saving lightbulbs is transformed into a warm, soft glow through the lampshade’s fabric.
Like in every network, it is also possible to connect multiple CRNKL!s together to form a new, large object from the sum of its parts. Long tubular lights can thus be used for illumination just as well as LED fixtures – on their own or combined in larger groups. CRNKL! works without any wiring or fixture of its own and comes packaged in a a4 sized flat box…
CRNKL! comes without any wiring or fixture. Do not use any incandescent lamps or halogen lamps!
