Pinha Customizeable Light Fixture: Put a Cork in It!

by Shane McGlaun

Cork is a strange wood. It’s very light and you can use it to make all sorts of things. We have seen cork cases for smartphones and other things. Today I ran across this quirky cork light fixture called the Pinha, designed by London’s Raw Edges for Materia.

The surround for the light is made for cork and it clicks together around a cool fluorescent light bulb. Once you connect the two halves of the Pinha to the bulb, you can then pin the paper shade of your choice to the fixture to get a custom light to suit your style. It would be easy to replace the paper shade to match your season or mood.

The way the Pinha is made the higher the ridge you choose to pin the shade to, the larger the shade opening so you can use it for a spot light or area lighting. The product is a concept now, but I can see this coming to market.
