The Mobius Collection is named after one of topology’s early theorists, August Ferdinand Mobius, and the famous Mobius strip he discovered. The story of the pendant’s design did not, however, start here. It began with a series of investigations of forms using paper models of different shapes that might become sculptural shades. While playing with the three-lobed shapes, stumbled upon the twisted form of the Mobius shade. I had wanted something that approximated the conic shape of a traditional shade, but with a unique twist. It ended up as a butterfly-shaped panel that, when folded, forms two half shades connected through the middle below the bulb. Because this shape has an inside surface on one half that is also an outside surface on the other half, we decided on the name Mobius because of similar properties of topological shapes such as the Mobius strip.
