Aiming to soften the harsh light of energy- and money-saving lightbulbs, Lübeck-based German company Schneid designed this lovely pendant lamp that was inspired by pinecones. Nicknamed Zappy, the lightweight lamp is made by hand with untreated, FSC-certified ash or oak wood panels that have been sourced from northern Germany.
