The Tectum Lamp Showcases the Sinuous Line of a Tiled Rooftop

One industry's trash can be another one's treasure. You might not have even guessed that each Tectum Lamp was actually assembled from recycled singles. Their stylish undulating contours seem to have been fashioned deliberately for the purpose of interior home fixtures rather than exterior construction.

Designer Jasmina Kontic used panels of sinuous PVC roofing, carefully rolled and molded them in the direction of their existing curves and joined opposite ends together for a perfectly continuous fringe of full semicircular bends. An ebony black finish was applied to the outside of each elegant lampshade to soften the look of the seam and so not to detract from the beauty of the shape with surface detail. Bright neon colors create a visual pop on the inside of the Tectum Lamps and set them off as exciting examples of contemporary design. Stats for Pleated Pendant Lights Trending: Older & Warm
