Design by Amanda Betz, 2012.
Because many may never get to see the lovely Sheikh Lutf Allah Mosque in Isfahan, Iran, designer Amanda Betz has created the Shayk so that people may enjoy just a fraction of its splendor. Made from high-tech synthetic paper, the Shayk has been cut to mimic the intricate and honeycomb-like pattern on the dome of the mosque. The Shayk by itself is stunning, but it's almost overshadowed by the striking patterns it casts on walls. You can adjust the look of the Shayk by adjusting the size with your hands. For those who often like to change things up, the Shayk offers a host of different shape options.
An optional electrical cord & socket set can be included for use with a 60-watt lamp. This optional upgrade is offered with a Textile or Rubber Cord and is for plug in only.
Optional cord set is plug-in only.
Material(s): Polypropylene, textile, rubber
Bulbs: 1 X 60W incandescent lamp (not included)

Danish designer Amanda Betz has made her debut in the international design scene. As a graduate from The Royal Danish Academy of Art and Architecture, Betz was awarded the VOLA-prize for her final project. Furthermore, her work has been shown as part of the Lake of Fire exhibition at the Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art in Copenhagen. Betz's designs illustrate her experience and impressive resume. Her work exemplifies her interest in delving into what makes things beautiful. A perfect example is her 'Shayk' pendant. This pendant was inspired by the Sheikh Lotfollah mosque in Isfahan. Betz meticulously studied the mosque and attempted to design a pendant that mirrored the many geometric shapes that make up the landmark. Betz's designs showcase an ability to thoughtfully recreate fascinating embellishments from real objects or places that give her inspiration.View other products by Amanda Betz
