Shield is a minimal light created by Spain-based designers Kutarq Studio for Millelumen. Inspired by the shields of the Masai from Tanzania, consistent reduction, clear geometry and clean shapes are the design principles behind the ‘Shield’ luminaires. The lamp consists of two main parts: an opalescent diffuser (which is exchangeable and can be set up fast and easy), and a white-painted aluminum structural chassis. The shades are not opaque, but semi-translucent, creating an attractive aura and a pleasant atmosphere as a harmonious light falls upon the wall or ceiling. They are made in three different forms: round, oval and eye-shaped. The ‘Shield’ series are available as a wall, ceiling, pendant or floor lamp, and are all dimmable.
