Serpentine Light

By playing with the tension and natural flow—discovering the limits of the different shapes paper could adopt. The dark lines create the effect of an endless upwards spiral. The flow and curve of the almost translucent material is very natural and diffuses the light evenly. The design’s strong character and illusion of perpetual movement makes it the perfect lamp to hang above your dining table, in your hallway, or above your desk in your office. The lightweight material and perpetual movement make the Serpentine Light an elegant suspension light that keeps you guessing.

Product Story

The Serpentine Light brings the best of playfulness and lighting design together. Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren, from Swedish design studio Front, came up with the idea for the Serpentine Light when playing with a piece of paper; discovering the limits of the different shapes it could adopt.

Who would have thought that a simple piece of paper could bring about so much? The Aha! moment for Front came from playing with the tension of the paper, discovering what made the surface flow naturally; without losing the continuous flow. They realised that the twisting was made easier when using an S-shape. Combining multiple S-shapes made the shape look like a twisting and turning road. Bending the shape created cones or waves. The possibilities seemed endless.
