Product Details


A contemporary, high quality etched lamp inspired by the allium plant and brought to life with light. Its complex form belies its simplicity. Thirty identical plates are slotted together to form a Ø25cm globe, each crafted from a subtractive manufacturing process. The result is a beautiful lamp giving off intricate patterns to create unique ambience.
Allium mini is a shade that can be used on a standard E14 pendant fitting, so this does not come with a fitting or ceiling rose.

Weight: 1.1 kg
Dimensions: 25 × 25 × 25 cm

Bronze, Non Coloured, Oyster White

Care Instructions:

The lighting is for use in a normal dry domestic indoor environment. Take care when handling and installing product to avoid damage. Clean with a soft dry cloth only and don't use polishing agents, water or abrasive materials. Always switch off electricity supply before cleaning.


Allium lamp is the first creation by Tristian, marrying traditional processes of sketching and card prototyping in the initial stages of development to computer aided design and 3D printing in order to achieve the accuracy required for the structure of the lamp. They can be individually hung over a dining table for a soft inviting glow, or for more drama grouped together.
The process of creating the “globe look” of the allium plant that inpired it, started with researching Archimedean solids. Geometrically, it is a pentatruncated rhombic triacontahedron. After many prototypes and material choices requiring different manufacturing methods, the optimum choice was to have the final lamp made from stainless steel. It had just the right amount of spring and strength to be about to be slotted together. However, unlike the natural wood and transluscent plastic prototypes, perforating the material was required to allow more light out. After an exhaustive process, the only suitable manufacturing method was to chemically etch the steel.
I then assemble the plates to create the Allium lamp and produce all the artwork and instructions which are supplied with the lamp.
