The Puff lamp collection revisits the classic traditional rice paper lamp. It was born during a trip to Japan by designer Saskia Huebner, who saw countless variations there.
Rice paper lampshades, used for centuries to adorn temple halls, are one of the oldest Asian craft traditions. Light and graphic, they allow you to play with geometry and organic shapes.
Another advantage is that rice paper makes it possible to create very large volumes without wasting unnecessary material or creating visual heaviness. The paper diffuses a warm, natural light that is both energy efficient and comfortable to the eye.
Puff lamps will find their place in large hotel lobbies, restaurants and small private spaces.

Saskia graduated from the MSD/Münster School of Design in Germany in 2016. There she studied interdisciplinary design, where the focus was on how the design of a product is affected by the environment in which it will be used, and the contemplation of the place it occupies in society. Therefore, Saskia wants her work to serve a purpose, while valuing aesthetic objects and design.
After graduating, Saskia moved to Copenhagen, where she worked at Normann Copenhagen as a senior designer for four years. Today Saskia runs her own design studio with clients all over the world.
Saskia's approach to design is always focused on functionality, to create something that has a purpose and can be very useful in the desired setting. Attention to durable solutions is also an important part of the design process.
She draws her inspiration from everyday life, observing how people interact with design and questioning why objects look the way they do, in order to challenge the traditional design thinking. Saskia's design philosophy is to create a minimalist design while giving it its aesthetics through well thought out and harmonious shapes.
