Piet Hein Eek Handfolded Lamp 1
Designer
Piet Hein Eek
The Piet Hein Eek Handfolded Lamp 1 is an original piece by Piet Hein Eek. Its simple forms allow the metal to shine in all its beauty. The Handfolded Lamp Series results from Piet Hein Eek’s renewed interest in punching machines. A punching machine is an old-fashioned tool that has progressively fallen out of use due to its considerable limitations. During the design process, Piet recovered this technology and discovered that the punching machine works best when it creates simple shapes. This discovery allowed him to develop a series of lamps in a cost-efficient way. Controlled by a computer, this machine punches the shape of the chosen design in the sheet.
