The squared Phrena pattern is refined and geometric in its flattened state. But by applying tension to the structure and bringing the 2 dimensional form into the third dimension as it expands into a lamp shade, the once rigid appearance distorts and becomes softer. It is legant and organic, but with a minimalist and modernist feel. Its hard lines will match the strictest architecture while its curves would still feel at home in the woods. Square Phrena can be installed in two positions to create two different light distributions and appearances.
Upon manipulation this perfectly flat light fixture transforms into a beautiful 3-D shade. Created from the “simplicity of opening a book, the pages of this light work together to create perfect symmetry.” Can be configured for up-lighting or down-lighting distribution.
