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.

“In my search to create a rigid 3D shape I’ve used the qualities of Colback to lead me in the right direction”

This translucent qualities of the material and the revolving process got her thinking of ghosts.
