SHINGLE Collection: Unconventional Material and Natural Composition in Lighting Design
SHINGLE is a collection of lamps crafted from wood, a natural and exquisite material that has been creatively utilized to create these unique lighting fixtures. Designed by Maria and Jacek Rypuła, architects and founders of the Gie El brand, these lamps showcase the inherent beauty of the material, becoming distinctive products with a characteristic and extraordinary form. Maria and Jacek, experts in using natural materials, emphasize the structure, form, and timeless beauty of the materials they work with in their daily creative endeavors.
The lamp’s shape resembles a pinecone, and it is often referred to as such. This model stands out with its remarkable and unconventional form, making it perfect for interiors that require a unique accent, setting it apart from any other lighting fixture. It is not a lamp that fades into the background; instead, it becomes a decoration and a strong aesthetic statement in any interior arrangement.
The composition of the lamp is enriched with genuine copper, which subtly tarnishes over time, darkening its hue. This natural aging process adds depth to the material and enhances its appearance. Copper complements wood beautifully and gains character as it matures. The entire composition is completed with a textile conical shade, concealing the bulb and diffusing warm, natural light into the surroundings.
Lamps from the SHINGLE series are frequently chosen by architects and designers for interiors that break away from conventional and stereotypical solutions. These soulful lamps are marked with the burned logo of the brand.
