Roofer Lamp is a versatile pendant light designed by Benjamin Hubert for Fabbian. Here is some information by the designer, “Roofer starts from a production brief of creating a flexible module that can create the surface of a range of shaped pendant lamp structures. Inspired by roof tiles found in marrakech a single ‘tile’ is used to clad various steel frame works. This allows for different shaped lamps to be created from a single tile.
The consumer can build their own lamp from a framework and selection of different colored tiles, allowing for customization as the end user becomes part of the design process.
The tile is manufactured from a flexible silicon polymer, which both allows the module to be formed around a compound curvature framework as well as allowing some light through its translucent structure. The selection of a polymer is also in line with the high volume production involved in this type of repetitive element scheme.”
