Eikon Shell story
Change the lampshades and adapt the lighting to your own mood! Change your room and your living space atmosphere! This lamp is made to live and grow with you for a long time.
The new model of the Eikon is wider and appears more straight- forward in its design. Accordingly, Eikon Shell, available in white, ice blue and bright yellow, lets the living space shine even brighter. With the interchange of the two models Basic and Shell, the Eikon is even more versatile in terms of design and function.
The Eikon consists of a turned wooden head of certified ash, oak or bamboo and a metal shade that is attached simply with the help of magnets. The lampshades and the textile cables are available in different colors. Due to the removable, interchangeable lampshade, the lamp can be installed in all kinds of rooms and living areas. The modular and flexible system can therefore help to rearrange a room again and again, according to taste and requirements. With only a small grip the lampshade can be changed and another color or shape can be installed to the wooden fixture. Also for bigger spaces, like salesrooms and hotels, the Eikon offers a high degree of variability since different colors and shapes can simply be exchanged and combined.
The Eikon Shell pendant lamp by Schneid is equipped with 3 m of textile cable and a high-quality ceiling rose CableCup®.

With the new ceiling rose, there’s always a perfect fit between the lamp and ceiling, without gaps. The soft material also means that the rose’s shape adjusts itself to the length of the ceiling hook.
The Swedish designers are Lars Wettre and Jonas Forsman. The actual idea of being able to turn a ceiling rose inside out came to Lars while he was sleeping. The morning after he started work with making a rose that could be turned inside out so as to meet all the demands placed on a ceiling rose. Lars and Jonas worked together in developing the function and design of the ceiling rose, which received the name CableCup. They developed a simple a small solution for ceiling lamps. The CableCup® is extremely easy to install due to the soft material and the fact that it can be turned inside out.
