How to perforate a metal sheet volume without using a costly 3D-laser cutter: Soon, during this year’s light+building in Frankfurt the Berlin based designers of Formfjord will present brand new prototypes of their newest extremely smart lighting project ‘Crown’. In fact this series of pendant lights is producible with more or less common tools. Plane sheet metal is laser cut and canted in the accordant angles. The volume accrues after putting together the two endings and fixing them with two tiny screws. The ribs are cramped by two discs on top. In order to avoid a complicated bicoloured powder coating the designers decided to use a filter which is magnetically fixed on the inside of the lamp shade and lets it shine in a decent colour – coated by light.
