All IUMI products are created in our workshop in Berlin. Our aim is to make things that are beautiful and that keep a gentle silence, opposing the monotony of industrially produced furnitures. Since our son was born in August 2012 we are a small family business. Friends and neighbors make our team complete. IUMI’s HEKTOR L lampshades have a sophisticated shape which makes the light bulb effectively disappear. The material we use: There might be no material more familiar to us than wood. For thousands of years we have used its strength and admired its beauty. At IUMI we connect the lively character of the material and the love for craft with the precision of digital design. We follow the premises of clear, subtle and sustainable styles. The light gains its warm character by the natural reflections of the wood. This means our lamps especially suit the needs of energy saving bulbs. We deliver all our products as birchwood assembly kits. The wood comes precut and in a lovely handprinted box. With a little love and just a few minutes you put your individual piece together. An illustrated assembly manual is included. takes as long as a cup of tea. No glue or screw needed.
