IJLAMP for DARK

Two identical lampshades and a changeable colour filter are the components of the bulb-shaped IJLamp light. A standard lightbulb fixture holds them together. The dimensions of the components are entirely adjusted to the desired light throw and available sizes of energy efficient bulbs. A single lampshade can also be installed as a ceiling or a wall lamp. Several lamphades can be piled on top of each other in a flat box, which reduces transport costs and environment taxes levied. Because assembly does not require any glue or screws, recycling of packaging remains straighforward as well.

How it works!

This animated instruction (1:24) about the IJ-Lamp has recently been added to this website. Jacob de Baan met Yoshiko Miyaguchi at Salone del Mobile. She showed him some of her earlier work and he was enthousiastic about her idea to create an animation about the IJ-lamp immediately!

Simple sustainable colorful lamps
Comfortable light

The IJ-Lamp consists of two identical black and/or white caps and colored filters held together by a standard light bulb socket.

Alternatively, a single cap can be installed as a ceiling or a wall lamp. The fixture dimensions are harmonized with the specifications of the latest dimmable energy-efficient LED-lamps.

ij13 The caps and filters are produced and packed in Europe (the Netherlands and Italy). Several caps and filters can be stacked in one flat box. With this approach we avoid unnecessary environmental damage and high transport costs. No glue or screws are used, which allows for easy waste separation

Visual sustainability

The design of the lamp is timeless and will withstand the ravages of time.

For fluorescent and LED bulbs

The fixture dimensions are harmonized with the specifications of state-of-the-art dimmable energy-efficient LED-lamps, warm red light (2700K).
Do not use halogen or incandescent bulbs!

Standard fittings
Standard fittings (E27) are used for both wall and ceiling assembly.

No loss of material

The caps are produced out of a plastic polymer sheet measuring two by three metres. The diameter of the lamp (260 mm) is adapted to this measurement in order to avoid creating unnecessary cutting waste.

Reusable plastic
The white caps are made of PET-G. The black caps are made of PMMA-XT. These plastics can be recycled and reused. In waste incineration it transforms mainly into CO2 and water.

No glue, no screws
No glue or screws are used, which allows for easy waste separation.
