The word ‘ibride’ itself is a play on words in French meaning ‘hybrid’, and many of the pieces combine several forms and several functions… Each tray is constructed to last using a century old technique. Created of high pressure laminate each of Ibride’s items are thoroughly functional and lifestyle enhancing at the same time. ”

Cecilie Manz: Mondrian Table Lamp

Not only is this nicely modern, it’s also super efficient with halogen bulbs and built-in reflectors to provide an adjustable direct light.

“Mondrian is constructed of steel bar and pipe, and moulded parts. To prevent glare, the lamp housing is moulded with a collar around the light source. The translucent ring in moulded acrylic insulates the heat from the outermost section of the lamp head. The ring lights up when the lamp is on, and indicates how to adjust the light. Mondrian’s light can be directed 180 degrees horizontally and 335 degrees vertically.”

Tobias Wong gold spoon
