The Lloop lamp is adjustable in height by extending or shortening the loop of the electricity cable which comes as the result of a wooden piece attached to the cable.
A large loop makes a high lamp, a small loop makes a low lamp. The function becomes the decoration and vice versa; simple, clear and without hidden techniques.
The Lloop lamp is available in countless color combinations for the lampshade and cable. By using the online Lloop lamp configurator you can put together your own lamp completely.
Choose from dozens of carefully selected colors and materials for the components of the lamp. Real brass and copper are, of course, also among the options.
Custom made ceiling caps are possible on order.
Transparency of the production chain comes naturally to us.
For us, that doesn't just mean giving information about where something has been produced. Our chain starts much earlier: with the designer of the product!
We'll tell you the whole story. Click on the buttons to discover the different steps:
The Lloop lamp is designed by Aptum. Under the name 'APTUM', Tineke Beunders & Nathan Wierink (previously Ontwerpduo) together design custom-made lighting and lighting installations. The label offers a full service in design, production, and installation of custom-made lighting in unlimited configurations.
With Ontwerpduo , Tineke and Nathan developed a very strong passion for lighting, and years of experience in production and installation all over the world. The duo's ardent desire to be able to produce more specialized work, combined with the increasing demand for it from the interior and architectural sectors came true with the launch of APTUM in October 2019. The brand takes over Lloop and Lloop XL from Ontwerpduo's portfolio.
"Form and function is a combination of words that you absolutely cannot separate during design. The combination of form and function must be in balance. One time the function can be a larger part of the design, the other time the form, but always the following applies: form and function need each other to work."Tineke Beunders
The Lloop lamp has been part of the Vij5 collection since 2009. We have enjoyed working with Nathan & Tineke for many years, mainly because we share the same passion to be both designers and entrepreneurs.
The great thing about the Lloop lamp is not only that it is easily adjustable in height. With its simple form, it blends in wonderfully with practically any interior style.
The included wooden piece is meant to create a loop in the cable. By carefully sliding the wooden piece you can make the loop in the power cable bigger or smaller. This allows you to adjust the lamp in height: a large loop makes a high lamp, a small loop makes a low lamp.
"The great thing about the Lloop lamp is not only that it is easily adjustable in height. Because of its simple form, it fits in wonderfully with almost any interior style."Arjan & Anieke
The Lloop lamp was originally designed in aluminium with a white inside (the Lloop Classic). Soon a pure copper and then a brass variant followed, available with a polished exterior or with different colours on the outside.
Because we were increasingly getting requests for a larger version of the Lloop lamp, we asked Nathan & Tineke to think about a new version of the classic 'Lloop'. They surprised us with a new shape, which is clearly derived from the original, but still has its own character and is certainly not a copy. The Lloop XL therefore has its own identity and is a fresh take on the successful Lloop lamp series. You could see it as the beginning of a new family!
The Lloop is made of solid sheet material (copper, brass or steel) that is forced into the shape of the lamp. Then each shade is polished on a polishing machine specially designed for this lamp.
An important part of the production of the Lloop lamp takes place in Aptum's workshop in Eindhoven. The lamps are also spray painted in their own spray booth, so there are many different options available for the lamp. Subsequently, the lamps are carefully assembled.
Finally, the lamps are 'double-checked' at Vij5 and packed in a box.
