The lampshade of »Fade« is made of a stainless steel sheet metal of merely 0,08 mm strength. When switched on, its microscopic perforation almost makes the shade look transparent while, at the same time, prevents any glare whatsoever. When Fade is switched off, the shade is opaque and effectively hides illuminant and inside fixtures. The hanging fixture appears to be seamlessly growing out of the body of the shade, almost like an organic extension.
