Sisu comes in three organic shapes, ranging from round to oblong, with a front cover that can be finished in rattan as well as colourful matt or mirrored acrylic.
Sisu creates an ambient light that highlights the silhouette of the lamp
To create the fluid shape of the lamps, Studio Rik ten Velden casts their frames in moulds using liquid resin.
These resin frames are embedded with LED lights, which emit a warm glowing light onto the wall and through the semi-translucent covers to emphasise the lamps’ silhouette.
The lamp’s front cover can be rendered in mirrored acrylic
“Indirect light creates a nice silhouette around the frame and lightens up the front surface,” said designer Rik ten Velden, who founded Studio Rik ten Velden.
“Sisu is not only a lamp. It is a sculpture, a mirror, a light and a decoration that brings fluidity and elegance together.”
Sisu is available in three organic shapes
Velden describes Sisu as a “light sculpture”, which can act as a statement piece in any interior space.
Multiple Sisu lamps can also be combined together to create a playful lighting composition.
