Stunning Dibond Aluminum Composite Lighting Concepts From Abroad

523eb2de5f334023ed03f55035dc14a1_f591We have featured two European lamp designs utilizing Dibond Aluminum Composite Material (ACM), each were incredible examples of the versatility of the material. Now, with two more examples of lighting designs, it is evident that Dibond is entering a new market segment in which designers are bringing new light to this traditional signage material.The designer of the “Table Lamp,” Andreas Mass, photographer, graphic and product designer, didn’t include too much information about his conceptual design. But, similarly to ZPSTUDIO’s Zeta Lamp, Mass’ lamp design appears to be constructed using a single sheet of Dibond. The panels interlock in such a way that no hardware or adhesives are necessary, allowing it to be easily self-assembled. Because Dibond features a polyethylene core, the material is sturdy enough to stand on its own with additional support.e648637d28dbf2a77076047d903be60b_f594Argentinian designer Cristian Mohaded, in collaboration with Imdi Iluminacion, created the “Volta” conceptual lighting collection utilizing Dibond ACM. Unique to this design, Mohaded focuses on the folding ability of the material, creating an interesting fanning effect with the ACM.Interestingly in an examination of why Dibond would be chosen for lighting in comparison to other more traditional materials we determined Dibond to be:Distinct from standard metal, Dibond’s polyethylene core allows the material to withstand temperatures of over 175˚Compared to glass, aluminum sheets are typically lighter, causing less strain if the lamps are to be ceiling mountedAluminum is more rigid, allowing for more complex shapes without compromising the integrity of the lampshade itself
