REWARDS

THE STORY

Popup lighting is a light fixture inspired by popup books. The idea was to turn every day icons into artistic and elegant lamps. The clean shape of the lamp is amplified by the light's reflection on the wall, creating a 'wow effect' and making the ambiance in the room magical… Bringing back that excitement and naivety we felt when we opened our first popup book.

WHEN LIGHT MEETS ART

Popup lighting was made to bring a unique ambience to any space. The game of light and space turns the lamp into a work of art, painting itself all over again every time it's lit. With a simple flip of the switch, beams of light turn into brush strokes turning the lamp into a work of art that dramatically changes the atmosphere, setting the mood and sparking the imagination.

THE INSPIRATION

When I was a child I loved popup books, they had the ability to take me into a world of fantasy and magic that always inspired my dreams. Each time I flipped a page I was sent down the rabbit hole, and just like Alice in Wonderland, I discovered a new fantasy world hidden in the ordinary looking book – the surprise making the magic all the more real.

Growing up, those feelings of magic and fantasy were getting harder and harder to find. That's why I created Popup Lighting. I always felt that there was something magical about light, so, with my passion for art and design I created a light fixture that would bring those nostalgic feelings of magic, excitement and innocence back into our everyday lives and by doing so, allow us to share them with our friends and loved ones.

THE DEER HEAD

The Deer Head lamp is a wall-mounted light fixture that can be used to light a multitude of spaces. It's a classic, nostalgic wall piece given a contemporary and sophisticated interpretation.

When lit, the Deer Head lamp creates a magical ambience. It's perfect for any situation; romantic moments in intimate spaces or magical fantasy in a child's bedroom.

HOW IT WORKS

The lamp is made with a laser cutting technique, followed by a metal folding process that gives the lamp a clean contemporary origami feel. The parts are then painted and assembled into the final form of the fixture. The fixture is equipped with energy efficient LED lighting modules. With a simple flip of the switch or pull on the handle (premium edition) the picture is completed by the light's reflection on the wall, creating the classical Deer Head icon on your wall. The lamp is ideal for low-light environments and even, as a night light.

Risks and challenges

We spent a long time perfecting the design of popup lighting. We vetted several factories in order to ensure that we would be working with trusted partners. Manufacturing a new product always carries risk and potential delays. We will be fully transparent with our backers on any developments or delays.

-Shipping
We have planned extra time for the manufacturing process and are determined to deliver on the projected date. In the event of any delays, we will update our backers on any changes to the delivery schedule.

-Manufacturing
We have gone through several prototype iterations with our suppliers to ensure the high quality of craft and an understanding of our timeline.

-Product
Popup lighting went through numerous prototype iterations to test for performance, quality and flawless operation. Once production begins, the light fixtures will undergo full electrical inspection and UL certification in order to meet the highest US and EU standards.
