Huge, globe or sphere shape shade with real wow factor. Elektra is a wonderfully intricate piece that’s more of a light sculpture than lampshade.

Get glowing with a key trend for a perfectly styled, contemporary twist on traditional lighting. An over-sized light shade is the perfect way to add some impact and originality when decorating your home this year. Elektra is perfect if you wish to create a stunning centrepiece in a living room, dining room or a fabulous focal point in a space geared up for socialising. Not only is it a masterpiece of geometry, it’s a wonder to behold! The Elektra is a statement piece for an interior and is guaranteed to become the centre of attention. NO SELF-ASSEMBLY REQUIRED!

We advise that you think carefully about the size. Choose from Medium, Large or Extra Large size in the drop down menu. The majority of the lampshades pictured are the large size, which is the size to go for.The extra-large is only slightly bigger and must be supported, The large is a much better option.The WOW! Factor is the same, but the large size is simply more ergonomic meaning the large is a 'tighter' shape, less cumbersome, lighter, neater than and not as fragile as the extra-large. They're more likely to get sent back to us to be replaced, costing us a fortune in boxes and shipping. Please do enquire before ordering the extra-large and consider carefully as you may have to cover the cost of return.

Choose to hang from ceiling from a standard ceiling rose pendant, there are many varieties on the market, in different length cables and finish, or they can be used as a freestanding lamp. If you don't have a ceiling rose pendant already fitted, order one in the drop down menu. To use the shade as a lamp, order a switched 2 metre cable with plug.

This stunning design is Smarty Lamps largest and most intricate design in the range. The dodechahedron shaped structure of this huge, round light shade is absolutely ideal for rooms with high ceilings, as well as hallways, offices, entrance and reception rooms. Smarty Lamps Elektra has been installed in a variety of public and private venues.

made from:

Interlocking, geometrically identical shaped components, die-cut from opaque, white polypropylene sheets are used to create this sculptural light shade. A material chosen for its quality, durability and recyclability. Made in the UK by hand, each and every Smarty Lamp is fully assembled by us. To clean - use a duster regularly, or spray and wipe with cleaner or take off and wash in soapy water / shower it down. Just don't take any pieces out, remove the shade by pulling out the cable and bulb hrough the nearest gap.

Designed for use with ceiling pendant style light fittings; the stylish, non-electrical light shades are designed to fit on to a new or existing ceiling pendant cable.

The lampshade has the appearance of a solid shape. The light bulb is hidden fully enclosed inside the shade. Without any dominant opening, the light emission from the bulb is dispersed and filtered throughout the lampshade’s outer surface made up of clean curved gaps. So you don’t get that niggling glare from an exposed light bulb.

Installation is easy as the light shade comes packaged in a box, ready to use straight away. Simply take the shade out of the box, attach to the flex above the light bulb, suspend from the ceiling then turn it on.

When installing there is no need to fit extra light fittings – The shades ‘self-grip’ around the flex. The light bulb and lampholder at the end of the pendant lighting cable hanging from the ceiling rose, is inserted through one of the narrow gaps in the structure of the shade and simply slots into the centre of the nearest ‘joint‘ of FIVE flaps (where the corners meet) which holds it in place. PLEASE be careful to not undo the connecting pieces. Push the bulb through a gap, avoid undoing any part of the structure. If they pop out, slot back in, bending back underneath the existing 'flaps' or corners of the pieces. See our YouTube channel for how-to video guides on hanging the shade and other helpful tips -


We recommend CFL and LED energy saving light bulbs from 8W to 12W which is equivalent to a 60 watt incandescent bulb. Use Golf ball, candle or Corn style bulbs if the shade is small or narrow. Do not use the old style incandescent, filament bulbs, as they get too hot. Only use bulbs up to a maximum of 40 watts (40W).

To clean - use a duster regularly, or spray and wipe with cleaner or take off and wash in soapy water / shower it down. Just don't take any pieces out, remove the shade by pulling out the cable and bulb hrough the nearest gap.

Although this circular design appears to look round like a sphere, globe or ball, geometry describes this as a Dodecahedron shape– made up of 12 Interconnected Pentagons.


Inspired by iconic interior design, Smarty Lamps have a very contemporary look. The range is characterised by a simple, minimal and functional structure, and textured with an origami style geometric pattern. Smarty Lamps unique modular structure enables the shades to give out a soft, evenly diffused, ambient light.

Medium - Appx 50-60 cm diameter, height and width. Tightly knit and intricate looking. Suitable for all rooms, ceiling heights.

Large - appx 70-90 cm diameter, height and width (recommended as the best size. Aesthetically pleasing shape and solidity, it actually fits most rooms / ceiling heights - it holds it's shape firmly, it's more robust than the extra large and the difference in size is minimal for the much the same impact)

Extra Large - Appx 80-100cm diameter, height and width. Supplied with spider shade carrier to support the extra weight. Best for exceptionally big rooms with high ceilings.
