Malda, pendant lamp (prototypes)

Malda (말다) means ‘to wrap’ in Korean. This minimalistic pendant lamp basically consists of a rolled-up sheet of Forbo Desktop linoleum.

The flexible material is cut into shape, simply rolled around an aluminum frame and then fixed with an aluminum band. In this way, a three-dimensionally shaped lampshade is constructed from a flat surface, using only a few simple manufacturing operations. The linoleum used for this lamp comes from waste streams from the furniture industry.

NOTE: This is a prototype series with small imperfections but otherwise new lamps!

Malda was designed by Studio PESI, a South Korean design studio founded by Byounghwi Jeon. He developed this lamp to explore a new method in which he wanted to construct a three-dimensional shaped lamp using only a few basic manufacturing processes. Malda literally ‘carries’ a piece of material as a lampshade, giving a stage to various colors and material properties.
