Designed by Marcel Wanders, the Big Shadow lamp is a free-standing diffused lighting fixture, available in different sizes and heights.
One of designer’s first projects, Big Shadow is an accurate reflection of his vision: a combination of materials and innovative techniques with traditional styles and archetypes. The inspiration for these lamps can be found in abat-jour table lamps, revisited here in a contemporary key with the fabric covering not just the upper part of the lamp, but also the base, to create a warm and cosy light source.
Big Shadow has a structure made of chrome varnished metal bar with a cover in white polyamide and viscose.
Available in 90, 120, 160 and 200 cm height.
Born in Boxtel, the Nederlands, in 1963, he developped his experience in design field first in the sphere of Droog Design, than with Wanders Wonders brand, nowadays with Moooi. He collaborates with Authentics, Flos, Magis, Mandarina Duck, Salviati. Impetuous and always enthusiastic, he creates delicate and light objects, quite as the used technology was a second nature for human race. Marcel Wanders believes it is important to learn about materials, to know what they can do, how they are produced and how they are processed: in this way he creates his project, a synthesis of handcraft and industrial technology.
