Bend it to your liking

The MIO Bendant Lamp is the only chandelier pendant lamp that can be customized by bending the shades. The Sputnik-like design is flat-packed for efficient transportation and consists of leaf-like shades surrounding a central fixture with a candelabra socket in the middle. The leaf-like shades can be bent up or down in infinite configurations to create unique light and shadow arrangements. Bending Bendant is as fun and easy as arranging fresh flowers, but with a much longer shelf life! Each Bendant Lamp comes with a 15 foot cord set that has a plug and a switch at two feet from the plug. It also comes with a hardwiring kit for permanent installation to the junction box. The cord set is available in White, Black or Red and the hardwiring kits are available in white or black.

More Juicy Details

Recyclable: The Bendant Lamp is made from steel, which is a commonly recycled material. Three-fourths of all American steel ends up recycled into new products.

Recycled Content: The steel alloy used to make the Bendant Lamp has recycled content ranging between 30% and 40% depending on the production batch.

Environmentally preferable finish: Powder coating is a durable, low VOC (volatile organic compound) finish. Once the paint is cured on the surface, no particles will be emitted into the air. This improves indoor air quality and eliminates strong odors in your living space.

Design: Manufactured to ship flat, maximize material yield and eliminate cutting waste, the Bendant Lamp is a truly eco-centric design. Inviting the user to participate as co-designer, the Bendant Lamp redefines the relationship between products and users and the relationship between designers and customers. The interaction created by the lamp also works as a catalyst in establishing a dialogue about the virtues and opportunities in locally made, sustainable products.

Material and process guide the Bendant Lamp's design, making it a true example of eco-centric design. The size of the lamp, shape of the cuts and flat packaging are a result of material and manufacturing efficiencies. In addition, the lamp welcomes the user as co-designer pushing the boundaries of design and self-assembly.
