Colback is a product with strong dimensional stability. For Erik Stehmann, the best way to turn this into a 3D product was by experimenting with folding. By creasing the Colback, its fibres can be weakened locally, controlling where the material folds. By developing a computer controlled creasing technique, it became possible to make rounded creases. 

Erik eventually designed a pattern that effectively creates a tube, with the strength of a thick wall, without actually having a thick wall. Therefore the end result is a strong, lightweight and visually attractive tube. This tube became the base of Erik’s Rilly Nice lamp series.
