Help Orange Sessions manufacture its first lighting design. Orange Sessions is inspired by the Sun and it has been handcrafted in the heart of Europe. The meaning of a name lies behind symbolism of orange color which combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, creativity, optimism, enthusiasm and warmth.
Peeling the endless layers of imagination
I've always been in love with nature and all of its phenomena, my favourite of them being the Sun.
Through the years of painting I have played with the idea of capturing the ethereal, elusive qualities of sunshine. Seven years ago, I started experimenting and making various art objects out of orange peels. Soon I have discovered how interesting, rich and durable that material really is. After that, it was only a matter of time when Lucie will be born.
Years of research and testing have led to this unique line of lamps, using a patent pending techniques. The idea behind Lucie was to create an object where light would stand on its own as an expressive art form. Everything is created by hand, so no two finnished pieces are identical. I’ve chosen the varnish of the best quality tung oil with special blend of pure essential oils that will make your Lucie last for decades to come.
I've developed prototypes and have been producing Lucie series on a small scale. Now that I am moving into significantly larger quantities, I plan to cooperate with fellow artists, but we need your help to take this to the next level. To help us out, you can pre-order one of these magnificent lamps at a special Kickstarter price. These lamps would normally be sold at 30%-40% higher than the prices in this campaign.
Here are a few ways you can use Lucie:
• Table lamp
• Wall sconce
• Ceiling pendant
• Task lighting
• Accent light
• Yoga and meditation lamp
• As one and only Sun lamp
• Come up with your own unique uses for Lucie!
QUALITY MATERIALS & COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
As Orange Sessions creates unique lighting products, we go out of our way to ensure quality with every item we make. High-grade local oak wood is used for each lamp and finished with a tung oil finish.
Lamp globe is made out of glass and covered with peels. Inside it resides a high output 9W LED light. Fabric covered cables bring a twist of Italian taste in style. Everything is 100% recycable.
This lamp compliments every setting we have placed it in. It never fails to draws people attention. If you are looking for a unique lamp to add to your home, please help us by backing my project and receive your own Lucie lamp. Get your Lucie now so you are not left waiting in the dark.

Risks and challenges
I already produced a test batch of the Lucie lamps and am confident that together with fellow artists, we can produce many more. We've also researched and chosen the best shipping options and most of the arrangements have been confirmed. Our suppliers are reliable, and although slight delays may happen, we are committed to delivering to our supporters.
We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates. We will always keep you informed if things take longer than planned.
We have taken the following steps to ensure that we deliver the best quality product:
- Built many working prototypes. We might only make design refinement to enhance the product experience.
- Extensively tested prototypes for performance and durability.
