Hello Kickstarters!

I’m Nir Chehanowski, original maker of BULBING and creator of Studio Cheha. I’m excited to personally reach out and thank all of our amazing supporters for believing in us and helping to make our last Kickstarter campaign happen!

We were blown away by the support and success of our BULBING lamps (funded in just 3 days!), which quickly caught the attention of global design media, leading design stores and fans worldwide. We even succeeded to be listed as ‘best sellers’ at the New York MoMA Store and Paris’ Pompidou Centre Boutique. We couldn’t have done it without you!

At Studio Cheha’s heart, our design philosophy is all about reimagining everyday objects with a cool and creative difference! We are committed to producing original products that aim to alter your perception of space and form by using 3D shapes as the basis of our 2D designs.

Expanding our horizons

After the production of our successful flat LED BULBING series, we decided to expand our horizons — and the SIZE of our lamps— and create an advanced version that is NOW DESIGNED TO READ WITH and will make a visual statement for any living, work, public or private space!

Create an ambiance to any room

Our new designs are Sophisticated + Funky = Sophistifunk!

We’re all about innovation! Our new lamps are inspired by classic and vintage-style desk lamps with a modern twist. By deconstructing their wire-frame forms and setting it against a flat, clear surface, Studio Cheha continues to develop our original ideas for cool and functional design pieces—that produce the illusion they are 3D, once switched on!

In addition to increasing the scale, this time, we’ve opted for an industrious approach to the shape of the lampshade while keeping our signature optical illusion and 3D magic as the focal point of the design.

Great for reading!

New features!

At Studio Cheha, we are constantly working to refine our designs and optimize your lighting experience.

With this, our new “by BULBING” lamps will feature brighter LEDs, ideal for reading with – and a dimmer, enabling you to choose the desired lighting experience from decorative to 100% practical.

Materials

Each flat LED “by BULBING” lamp is made from a thick and strong sheet of acrylic glass that has been accurately laser engraved to create a classic lampshade silhouette. By etching dozens of intricate lines onto the acrylic sheet, we are able to create a sense of dimensionality, as LED light travels through the lines illuminating the design and creating a powerful optical illusion.

We have changed the original wooden base to classic steel and added a sleek birchwood stand to change the height and proportion of the design. The light is LED, with a lifespan of 50,000 hours, a warm glow, and heat-resistant.

Where you backers come in

We've been sketching and prototyping in the past year, deciding on the 3 models and even tested them in an international design show.

All there's left is to start production! 

Our products are made with love! Please help us continue making our dream come to light!

Risks and challenges

After two successful KS campaigns we have gained some valuable experience in fulfilling orders. The last part of it is the shipping issue.

This time, as mentioned, the lamps are bigger, and heavier. We will need to consider stronger packaging and some extra protection during the delivery service.

Besides this, for double or triple rewards we will need to deal with shipping via a courier, rather than via regular post office mail.

Fortunately, in the past two years we've made some good contacts at a number of reputable companies and we will make sure to get the best service from them, in order to ship all orders to our customer safe and on time!
