Artecnica Phrena 2 Table Lamp/Pendant Light

Design by Karl Zahn, 2009. By Artecnica. Inspired by the simplicity of opening a book, the Phrena 2 Table Lamp/Pendant Light transforms from a flat fixture into a beautiful 3-D shade. Made from highly durable and washable white Tyvek, the intricate accordian fold shade softly diffuses the light of a 60W lamp and adds a warm glow to any environment. Can be configured as a table lamp (with included stand) or as a pendant light. An optional electrical cord & socket set can be included for use with a 60-watt lamp. This optional upgrade is offered with a Textile or Rubber Cord and is for plug in only. Los Angeles-based Artecnica creates enchanting, ethereal home lighting options in collaboration with designers around the world. Using design as a vehicle for change inspires their environmentally-friendly vision and eco-responsible manufacturing techniques, such as flat shipping boxes. Pendants, chandeliers, ceiling lighting, and floor lamps are designed with a range of materials that stray from the lighting standard, making Artecnica a leader in lighting innovation through designer collaboration.
