Gallery: MIOCULTURE BENDANT LAMP

 

When it comes to style, we value individuality. There’s no novelty in mass production any more; instead, a product is desireable when it looks like it was the only one ever made. The BENDANT lamp, by MIOculture, blends the advantages of both mass-production and hand-made craft. The lamp comes to you as a mass-produced template that is ready to be bent into a unique shape, resulting in an absolutely one-of-a-kind creation.

The flat-packed chandelier is made of durable, laser-cut, powder-coated, flexible steel. By bending the various leaf-cut pieces into different orientations, the chandelier takes on dimension and character. The ingenuity behind the Bendant lamp is that the uniqueness of the product is authentic; unlike other companies who have added prepacked quirks to their designs to give them a one-of-a-kind effect, this is the real thing.

MIOculture follows the mass-customization manufacturing strategy of prefab: creating flat uniform components that facilitate waste-reduction, both in fabrication and packaging. To add to the eco-friendliness of the piece, the steel in the Bendant lamp is 100% recyclable.

    These lamps are very cool and they come with a key fob made from the center of the piece. They can even be bent into more unique shapes if two are put together.
