Lightweight takes inspiration from a traditional Japanese garden; a small contemplation on light, objects, energy and nature.

The Lightweight designs started with the idea to develop an alternative to shipping heavy lamps around the world. With the Lightweight collection, you can use heavy objects that you have at home to balance these lamps. The baskets are designed to hold items that you like, maybe your stone collection or perfume bottles, books, plants, postcards or other collections.

  • These are the last three pieces we have available.

  • The light uses a long-life LED bulb which can be replaced if needed. It can be used with either 110 Volt or 240 Volt.

  • The copper plating can have different shades of colour and can have small imperfections. The copper colour on these lights has darkened and looks like old copper. It will continue to darken over time.

  • Small variations may occur between the light shown in these photos and the other lights.

  • For indoor use only.
  • 3 year warranty.

You can view the Lightweight at our studio, by appointment only. Please email or call to make an appointment. shop@tordboontje.com
