Location: milli lux | Mandellstraße 4, 8010 Graz

Milli Lux has specialized in making textile lampshades, whose shaping is not done by a kind of wire or plastics but by the fabric itself. For Designmonat Graz the owner and lampshade designer Barbara Stoelzl came up with something special: ‘Shirt Rescue’ emerged in the course of a project dealing with a critical examination of the clothing industry around the topics of fair salaries, resource-friendly production, environmental pollution and more. Thereby, they make lampshades out of old T-shirts and thus every luminaire becomes a unique piece.

Instead, the components are bowed and folded, so that the largely minimalistic eyewear can actually be ‘bent’.
