A frosted plastic shade with an adjustable string – Haechan Ryu fabricates Line and Face.

Korea-based industrial designer Haechan Ryu skillfully fabricates ‘Line and Face’ – a fascinating frosted plastic shade with an adjustable string.

“Looking back on my personal work, I felt that the use of face or line elements and related materials were limited.

L&F is a project that was conducted for the purpose of exploring CMF that I have not tried before –  I wanted to express a new aesthetic by using an opaque plastic face with moderate tension and a line element that can control this tension” says Haechan Ryu.

Minimalistic and concise – the ring unit for fixing the face is seamlessly screwed into the conventional socket module.

Additionally, under this innovative opaque plastic face, the interior structure is subtly reflected, brilliantly showcasing a fresh visual.

Due to the tension of the plastic face – the shade naturally spreads toward the bottom and if one pulls the string tight and fixes it with the holder, a narrowed shape can be created.

“I tried to escape from a complex design through the simplest part configuration possible. 
A fixed ring is added to the LED bulb socket and one can effortlessly assemble the orange unit and screw to complete the basic structure” Ryu adds.
