Mood Lighting & Hushed Conversations
Innovate lamp design mixes illumination, sound proofing and aesthetic appeal in equal measure
Swedish lighting manufacturer Ateljé Lyktan’s latest venture is an interesting dual purpose lamp entitled ‘Hood’.
Hood continues the fine Swedish tradition of flat packed aesthetically pleasing furnishings. Intended as a modular and scalable center of illumination this lamp shade aims at a similar effect as parabolic conversation booths but with more care for textile aesthetics.
Designed to be both a light source and a sound barrier, Hood forms a halo over the table, catching loose sentences in its thick felt.
