The LIZ pendant light is inspired by ruffs worn in the time of Elisabeth I. (1533-1603). The originally straight shape of the ruff is tilted downwards to form a cone for LIZ. The LED filament lamp disappears completely in a recess inside the lamp, which consists of approximately 12 meters of PET-reinforced Shoji paper. The individual segments are cut out with a digital cutter. The characteristic curling is created by wires, which are threaded through holes on three levels. The ends are interconnected, whereby also the mount with the illuminant is inserted. LIZ is a hanging light sculpture and immerses rooms in atmospheric, uniform light.
