Concrete & Leather Lighting Designs

Posted on Aug 20, 2016 by

London designer Katharina Eisenkoeck combines leather with lightweight concrete to create lamps that are beautiful and durable. Boiling the leather enables it to be formed and gives it the stiffness required to serve as a handle. The sculptural shapes of the Icon Lamps and Nomadic Lights recreate familiar silhouettes and the cordless designs enhance their versatility and portability. LED lights switch on and off with just a simple tap or touch.

Boiled leather can be formed into shapes and becomes rigid once dry. These lamps can be carried by their leather handles.

This multi-functional light can be carried, suspended or placed on a desk or shelf. Its shape mimics a traditional worker’s lamp.
