About

BARDAJ LIGHTING EXPERIENCE PRESENTS: 

A NEW WAY TO LOOK AT LAMPS

When designing your space, do you think about your lamp choices as art? 

BARDAJ Lighting Experiences designs lamps that play with the juxtaposition of light and shadow. BARDAJ focuses on transforming spaces at night. The signature light projections expand across their surroundings, creating an awe-inspiring mood. 

AVAILABLE & SHIPPING IN USA, Europe & Canada

 EMBRACE THE SHADOWS  

These lamps are functional, sturdy, classic and have meaning—the effect they have is inspired by embracing the shadows of life. The polarity of darkness and light is the most influential force; for one cannot exist without the other. BARDAJ creations are symbolic of this core belief of embracing both our inner light and our inner shadows- in order to truly shine. 

MEET THE MISFIT LAMP COLLECTION- EXCLUSIVELY DESIGNED FOR KICKSTARTER (FOR REWARD BREAKDOWN SCROLL DOWN)

The MISFIT lamp was invented as a solution to monotonous everyday lighting with an intention to awe. Each piece is handmade and painted countless times to create a glossy layered wax look that allows the light to escape through with enchanting shadow projections on its surrounding.

 OUR VISION

Our goal is to raise money from our ready-to-ship MISFIT collection in order to bring our vision to life- for BIKUBA- which is to weave Jasmine's signature psychedelic prints through Bart's sturdy lamp designs- to create new visual vibration effects.

 EARLY PROTOTYPES 

Before BIKUBA reached its final form, it went through countless trials and errors, from design to materials and techniques. They are inspired from the effect of the first round of film material that was successfully experimented with.

THE OUTCOME: BIKUBA CUBE LAMP PROTOTYPE, HAND WOVEN ART LAMPS

 PRODUCTION SCHEDULE FOR BIKUBA  

We’ll ship in Spring 2019. Here's our schedule for BIKUBA delivery:

  • December-January: Make final product refinement.
  • February: Finalize manufacturing facility. Place material and purchasing orders.
  • March: Set up assembly facility. Begin assembly of first batch.
  • April: Packaging and shipping out finalized BIKUBA pieces. 
  • May: Estimated arrival.

MANUFACTURING PLANS 

All BARDAJ products are currently handmade in our workshop in Belgium. In order to scale for larger collections-  we need a larger studio as well as hiring local talent to help with production. 

Note* Final BIKUBA print on the lamp will be slightly darker/bolder than the lighter print shown as we optimized for effect -  as each lamp is cut and woven uniquely- there will variations piece to piece. 

OUR STORY  

Bart, Danielle and Jasmine
Bart, Danielle and Jasmine

BARDAJ  - is woven from the three founders names: Bart, Danielle and Jasmine. We met in a transformative workshop in Peru in early 2018. After which, we chose to combine our talents in electrical engineering, lamp design, graphic design, art, marketing and sales to create innovative lighting solutions and start a mission to: be light, create light, spread light.

OUR MISSION: TO BE LIGHT, CREATE LIGHT AND SPREAD LIGHT 

THANK YOU  so much for taking the time read our story and contribute. 

We look forward to a bright future.

Risks and challenges

We are aiming to have all rewards delivered and shipped in January 2019.

Note* Final BIKUBA print on the lamp will be slightly different than the lighter print shown as we optimize for effect - as each lamp is cut and woven uniquely- there will variations piece to piece.

Production is handled in our BARDAJ studio in Belgium - so no need for complicated overseas manufacturing process or delays. However as we are expanding to new facilities and everything is handmade, minor delays depending on the amount of custom orders or re-orders may occur.
