The Industrial Collection by the German designers of Dreizehngrad is timeless and poetic. The principle is simple: The glass shade is beeing supported by a wooden cone that accommodates the LED light source and the technical components. Switched on arises a precise cone of light – a comfortable direct lighting without glare.
The glasses of the Industrial Collection are hand made. Unlike industrially produced glas this inevitably leads to individual variations. The material thickness always varies which may cause that the shade does not suspend exactly horizontally. This is no sign of inferior quality, but of traditional manufacturing and underlines the individual character of the lamps. All three shapes can be combined for extra effect. You can select between two versions: clear and anthracite colored crystal glass.
Brand & Designer
Dreizehngrad design and manufacture lamps in genuine wood veneer. The lamps made from naturally treated maple or satin walnut veneer are designed with clear, elegant lines and bathe their surroundings in a warm, atmospheric light. Due to the individual growth patterns of the wood, such as tree rings or colouring, each lamp is unique. No matter whether they shine in private homes or public cafés, in hotels or restaurants – veneer lamps by dreizehngrad create a very special ambiance. The wafer-thin wood is presented in a very special way – delicate, flexible, translucent. The veneers are laminated on one side with cellulose fleece. The process reinforces the veneers rigidity, making them more resistant than conventional veneers. All veneers are sealed with natural oils.
The collection was designed by the team "dreizehngrad": Alex Paul Finke and Jörg Zinser, two young graduate product designers. They met during their studies in Dresden – on the 13th degree of longitude. Their passion for wood led them to the idea of building lamps. Precisely lasered steel rings and curved genuine wood veneer are the ingredients for the distinctive series "Funk" and "Bebop". In addition to the broad selection from their own product lines, dreizehngrad can also develop and manufacture customer-specific lamps in small batches.
