The Pix lamp with it's recognizable spherical silhouette has a captivating and unique surface made of recycled plastic waste.
A reinterpretation of the archetypical spherical pendant lamp, the recognizable, timeless silhouette is used for the design of the Pix Lamp, while the captivating surface of the lamp gets its unique look from its composition of recycled plastic waste.
Pix Lamp is not just an aesthetic design, it is also a resourceful one. For the production of the lampshade, plastic waste in various shades of white is mixed and granulated, before being heated to a melting point of 120°, allowing the material to be reheated and reused at the end of its life without altering its properties.
This particular process enables a circular life cycle and presents a design where each lampshade has its own, unique color composition. The thickness of the material makes Pix Lamp look opaque when the light is turned off. When the light is turned on, the appearance of the material transforms, obtaining a translucent look, the light from the bulb shining through and highlighting the granulated structure of the lampshade.
Wherever Pix is placed, its straightforward design idiom is sure to blend in with the surrounding interior while its distinctive lampshade offers a cozy, charismatic glow.

About the designer:
Simon Legald studies design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and will graduate in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small and large-scale products.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and what describes the functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it needs no explanation. The essence of my design is that it is bought and used.
Therefore, it must satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me, simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them reliable. In my designs I try not to add unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by emphasizing the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest look.”
