Assembled, with its geometric, translucent sheets of biodegradable polymer and jute, Dutch designer Jacob de Baan’s ‘Safir’ light resembles the faceted gemstone after which it is named.

“Natural lighting circumstances are dynamic and depend on the sun’s changing altitude- and colour.” says de Baan. “My approach is to translate this natural experience into corresponding design solutions. Some of the designs offer a cool light that comes from above and therefore intended for daytime use. Other lamps deliver reddish and lower positioned light for late night use.”

A light bulb socket containing an energy-efficient lamp holds Safir’s structure together. “In my designs I pay particular attention to ecology and sustainability. No glue or screws are used, allowing easy recycling. The fixtures are efficiently packed in flat boxes for light and efficient transportation.”
