A table lamp is usually made from wood or metal, but Sleeve is an unusual table lamp. It was designed by Metrocuadro Design to show an innovative way in making lamps. It is made entirely in a tailor’s shop using gray felt as the main material. The felt is sewn together with bright red thread and held together with mother of pearl buttons. It may looks weird when is not used, but when you light it on, it looks beautiful and interesting. More description by Metrocuadro Design:

Sleeve is realized from a felt sheet hand-made in a little and busy tailor’s shop near Bologna city, Italy. Acting as a hybrid element, halfway between design and fashion.

Thanks to material of which it’s made, to contrasting red seams and to mother-of-pearl buttons, Sleeve can be integrated in warm and rich in details locations as well in more minimalist and nordic settings.
