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 aluminium frame and then secured with an aluminium band. In this way a three-dimensionally shaped lampshade is constructed from a flat surface, using just a few simple production steps. The linoleum used for this lamp comes from residual streams from the furniture industry.

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.
