Phrena is a Light Shade

Upon manipulation this perfectly flat light fixture transforms into a beautiful 3-D shade.

Phrena Amaranthaceae Gomphrena Globosa  = The flower which gives the Phrena its name. 
Created from the “simplicity of opening a book, the pages of this light work together to create perfect symmetry."
Artecnicas use of white tyvek once again creates a glow and adds warmth to any environment.
Can be configured for up-lighting or down-lighting distribution.


Tord Boontje ..  "I wanted the assembly of the light fixture to be as simple as opening a book. It was to be perfectly flat to begin with and through careful manipulation, a three dimensional form would take shape. I was also attracted to the concept of the material simplicity becoming complex. There are so many perameters to play with that will alter the appearance and function of the light. But at the most basic level, it is a composition of pages all working together in symmetry."

The Phrena 2 can now also be configured as either a table light or as a hanging pendant .

Square Phrena

A new, elegant Phrena of larger size following more squared geometric contours continues the evolution of the Phrena design. The new design is at the same time impressive due to its larger presence and delicate due to its almost unbearable visual lightness.

The squared Phrena pattern is refined and geometric in its flattened state. But by applying tension to the structure and bringing the 2 dimensional form into the third dimension as it expands into a lamp shade, the once rigid appearance distorts and becomes softer. And it is remarkable how closely it then resembles the rest of the family.It is still elegant and organic, but with a minimalist and modernist feel. Its hard lines will match the strictest architecture while its curves would still feel at home in the woods.

Square Phrena can be installed in two positions to create two different light distributions and appearances.
