Cidea pendant in hand-folded, chemical-free paper from the Danish family business, Sonobe Light – here with a dark, golden-brown fabric cord. The lamp provides a soft and warm light through the unbleached paper, folded in up to 11 layers. All Sonobe lamps have names inspired by fossils in the Danish nature – here Cidea, after a group of petrified sea urchins, Cidarids/Cidaris.
The Cidea lamp was originally designed in connection with an exhibition and a project that gave it the name Light in Life. In the lamp's first two years of life, 5% of the turnover was donated to the organisation, Mentorbarn.
Sonobe Light is run by a family of five from a shop and workshop on Vesterbrogade in Copenhagen, based on Danish raw materials and sub-suppliers. For the lamps in particular, we are talking about a paper quality that is 100% recyclable and degradable, produced without the use of chemical bleaching.
The lamp is supplied assembled ready for use with 3m fabric cord, plug and built-in light bulb (E14 LED, lifetime up to 15,000 hours). The lamp is fitted with a piece of lambskin at the top and is closed at the bottom, from which the lamp can also be opened when the bulb needs to be changed. The strong paper means that the lamp can be easily opened and closed without breaking the paper. If you want to replace the light source, use E14, max 6W.
