Frangipani light shade

NZ designers Helen Stipkovits and Jelle Nijdam from Joug Design create a stunning light shade that resembles an array of Frangipani flowers.

The Frangipani light shade can be described as cylindrical light shade with a surface comprising of a complex array of symmetrical interlocking elements forming a soft 3D surface.

With illumination of the light shade the soft 3D surface transforms from an intricate pattern of interlocking elements to a gorgeous array that resembles row upon row of frangipani flowers.  Hence the name the Frangipani light shade. It is a product that is both intelligent and beautiful.

The original concept of the general shape that we use was created while sitting around a table with some friends and doodling on a piece of paper.

The design of the Frangipani light shade mirrors what we see in nature.

“Just walking through our natural environment and looking at the complex shapes found on land, along our coasts and in the sea allows us to use aspects of it in our designs. The natural shapes that occur in nature and the mathematical equations that these relate to are prevalent in our designs.”

We aspire to create intricate yet simple designs using mathematical shapes to create a functional form that has aesthetical appeal.  The Joug designs definitely suit the modern and minimalist home.

Joug light shades are hand made in New Zealand, the country that inspires us. The beautiful views, the open spaces and amazing coastlines provide us with ideas to create new and lasting products.

The plastic that we use is completely recyclable, and on average contains 30%-40% recycled component.  It is chemically unreactive/biologically inert, food-contact safe with no plasticisers, chlorine, leachable components or heavy metals and is non-toxic if burnt.

We are always looking for ways to improve sustainability in the products that we design, where we get our raw materials from and how we operate our business. The Frangipani light shade is a product that has lasting appeal.   The processes used when making the individual interlocking elements takes into account that we can re-use the waste material for other products and the waste that it left over is recycled.
