The idea came when Anna tried to discover what happens when a sheet of paper get slits and then formed tree-dimensionally. The light can pass in the slits and the surface come alive. With associations to classic lampshades in textile the AVS has a strong expression and a visual lightness despite being made in metal.
AVS is made in tree versions pendant, table- and floor lamp. The beige colour reminds of paper. White and orange are other colours for AVS . OPTIONS
