About this project
LOVE AT FIRST LIGHT
LÝSA is a wooden lamp with soft and minimalistic lines. We got rid of the unnecessary to keep only the essential. Inspired by Scandinavian culture, the use of raw materials seemed obvious.
- WOOD : We used naturally finished beech plywood to cut out Lysa. Our wood comes from French forests and is certified PEFC, which guarantees sustainable forest management.
- STEEL : LÝSA sits on a 6mm steel circular base. A coat of paint is then applied on to the base for a satin finish, as well as a coat of shockproof paint, ensuring quality and durability.
- TEXTILE CABLE : provides a clear visual touch
A WORD FROM THE DESIGNER
“Whilst working on LEDs, I was seduced by the quality of the light produced and I became aware of the autonomy that such a component could offer to designers. The desire to create a fun but functional product which would integrate this technology was born. The ideas which emerged made me think of the curves of a human body The design had to be simple, smart and arousing. LÝSA was born from these values that surround me.” Julie, Designer.
The idea for this lamp was born in the wild open spaces of Iceland, where the cosy interior life is part of the local culture. The warmth of the wood and the conviviality of the light allowed LÝSA to come to life. “LÝSA” is none other than an Icelandic verb meaning to “expose, light up or illuminate”. Other inspirations came and went ; she is the fruit of many encounters and the hope of more to come.

Risks and challenges
Launching a product always involves risks and challenges. Our aim is to find contributors who will allow us to develop and expand our project. We have no doubts about the quality of our lamp and we sincerely believe that we are on the right road to a successful production.
We have found reliable suppliers, all based in our region, assuring the quality and the origin of our materials. We are trying our maximum to manage the manufacturing process and to foresee all possible situations in order to estimate and reduce any risks.
Each one of our suppliers can ensure manufacturing in large quantities. We have already produced several prototypes of LÝSA and the necessary changes have already been made. Today, our technical plans are ready and our team and our suppliers are more than ever motivated to bring LÝSA to life! If our Kickstarter campaign is a success, we will reconsider our production capacity and set up solutions to guarantee correct delivery dates.
Last but not least, we will obviously keep our backers informed by publishing regular updates about our project. You can contact us on this platform as well as LÝSA's website, Facebook and twitter page : LÝSA LAMP.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
