Austrian designer Rainer Mutsch has created a series of lights that appear soft and pliable, but that are made of fiber cement, for Italian lighting brand Molto Luce.
“Each individual luminaire shade is moulded manually from soft fibre cement: the shades get their stability through their slightly rippled geometry which eventually leads to a minimum of material thickness.” says Mutsch.
Fibre cement, originally developed by Eternit, is produced using an eco-friendly process using natural resources like water and cellulose fibers. The material is highly durable and non-flammable. The Soft series consists of a wall light, a bar pendant light and a large pendant light.
