This zinc lampshade is fully handmade using a seaming technique that’s normally used to construct zinc and copper roofs.
The idea for this Lampshade was born when Romy Kühne was in Paris and oversaw the many old zinc rooftops of the city.
And when she got the assignment to design a special, eye-catching lampshade for an Architectural Office in Rotterdam she drew up the design for this Seamed lamp.
Whilst contacting different craftsmen to produce the lampshade she got in contact with a master craftsman specialized in copper and zinc work
who offered to teach her the seaming technique. After 1,5 year of weekly practice in the workshop of craftsman Peter Slegers she completed the lamp.
The Architect that gave her the assignment decided to wait for it and the “Seamed shade” is now the eye catcher in their office.
