Dashed Light

Léon de Lange together with Vij5

“The idea to implement the Dashed Lights in the Vij5 collection originated at the workshop of one of our steel manufacturers. We saw rough versions of the lamps in one of his cabinets and thought it was a shame that such a beautiful and well designed piece was just lying around.

So we contacted Léon, the designer of the lamp, and invited him to our studio to discuss a possible collaboration. It turned out to be a great match: these relatively smaller lamps are a very nice addition to the Vij5 collection and Léon was happy with this fresh attention for his design!”

- Arjan & Anieke


The Dashed Lights are studiously developed by Dutch designer Léon de Lange for the Vij5 collection.

The lamps are designed to be laser cut from a thin brass plate and folded afterwards by hand into a three dimensional shape using the ‘dashed line’ (a dotted line which is widely used in design processes). Small pop rivets are used at the corner points to make sure everything stays fixed into place.

When the light source is on, the lamp ‘leaks’ light through the same dashed line, creating a special pattern.
