Simply by folding, a 0,3mm thin brass sheet can be used to construct stable forms. This principle defines the shape and aesthetics of the Brass Lights. For precise bending, the lines have been etched halfway into the material. The sheets
are then folded and assembled by hand in The Netherlands. By reflecting its surroundings, each facet gets a different tone, from dark gold to yellow to beige.
The material gives a bright colour to the light that shines from these delicate lamps. The three variations of the Brass Light make them suitable for many different interior applications.

The Copper Lights CL-16, CL-25 and CL-30 comply with the provisions of the guidelines LVD (2006/95/EG) (Low tension guideline) and complies with standards NEN-EN-ISO 12100: 2010 and NEN 1010: 2007.
By nature, brass oxidises easily. Therefore the material will get darker over time and fingerprints can result in oxidation stains. We recommend to touch the lampshade as less as possible with your hands to prevent stains on the brass. Wear enclosed hand gloves while cleaning and hanging the lamp.
We recommend to clean the Brass Lights with a HG copper/brass shine cloth (www.HG.eu). The cloth can either be used slightly wet for removing intense stains, or dry for light stains.
If there remain stains on the copper despite all this, please remove them carefully with HG copper shine polish (www.HG.eu). This is also suitable for brass.
Reminder: Always switch off the electricity supply before cleaning!
