Made in the UK by hand, each and every Smarty Lamp is fully assembled by us. Customers receive the actual lampshade itself, as pictured. Self-assembly is not required.
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.
FITTING THE SHADE IS EASY
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‘ which holds it in place.
ADVICE ON LIGHT BULBS
We recommend CFL and LED energy saving light bulbs from 8W to 11W which is equivalent to a 60 watt incandescent bulb. Use 8W 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). When positioned correctly the light cable is gripped so the light bulb hangs in the centre of the shade, rather than at the top and will stay fixed in place.
Inspired by iconic interior design, Smarty Lamps have a very contemporary look. The range of designs offer a variety of different shapes and sizes of shades, all 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. There is a Smarty Lamp to suit any interior space or room in the house.
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.
