The Kite Lamp draws its aesthetics from a thorough investigation of the aesthetics of kites. An object that has traveled through thousands of years of design iteration in different cultures where it was refined and shaped.

Similar to the kite, which consists of no redundand parts, this lamp follows a strict but simple construction, which is easy to assemble.
Its simplicity and lightweight combination of the used materials ash and Tyvek meet its timeless standard.

In this project the aspect of distribution has been considered carefully, resulting in the lamp being shipped in a small packed and well protected tube format.
