Linon suspension lamp, designed by Andrea Scholz for Thonet to be an icon of design and sustainability.
The LINON pendant lamp, with its simple and circular shape, enriches the current range of Thonet products, faithfully respecting its style and, together with the new lamps Kuula and LUM 50, adds another piece to the proposal of solutions for all-round furnishings.
The designer Andrea Scholz was inspired by the strongly classic shapes and models of the Vienna straw chair and the Mart Stam cantilever to propose two prints for the
shade screen. Both the pattered pattern and the subtle silk-screened lines on the linen produce a dynamic effect that catches the eye in any interior, private or public.
To create the two iconic models Andrea Scholz, designer of the study Koivuu of Berlin, was inspired by the sessions of Thonet, which she knows well from personal experience. The stylistic code of the Hessian company is recognizable only on a closer look. The imposing, height-adjustable drum lampshades are offered in the “Wickerwork” model with a pattered motif, in two shades of color, reminiscent of the Vienna straw textures of the classic Thonet bentwood or tubular steel.
In the "Cantilever" model, on the other hand, the thin lines on a petrol or black background refer, for the more attentive observer, to the profile of the frame of the S 43 cantilever chair. LINON thus naturally fits into the tradition of Thonet enriching the collection proposed up to now of upholstered furniture, tables and chairs in a completely original way.
The motifs printed on the precious organic linen of the lampshade are screen-printed by hand (one of the oldest artisan printing methods) using specific ecological colors. No chemicals are used in the cultivation of flax and in the chosen colors. The irregular surface and the typical inclusions of the processing of natural materials give LINON a special character making each lamp a unique piece.
