The Nautica Light Shade is the first of a new line from Kaigami. With just a brief glimpse it’s clear that this imaginative light shade takes its inspiration from the classic shapes of marine life. The Nautica borrows its name from the seashell and so fills us with the idea of the ocean, even when we are a thousand miles away. Polypropylene sheet is the material used to create this sculptural light shade, a material chosen for its quality, durability and recyclability. Specially designed recyclable polypropylene rivets are used to hold the light shade together – in fact it would be impossible to create the clean curves and shapes without these vital components. The Nautica Light Shade is delivered flat-packed in 90% recycled packaging and 10% FSC accredited board for self-assembly, saving space during transit and thereby reducing carbon emissions.
