Remodelista Reconnaissance: An Accordion Wall Lamp for the Bedside

January 13, 2023

This week, while researching our post Brücke 49: A Perennial Design Favorite in Vals, Switzerland, 10 Years On, we eyed a handy wall-mounted accordion light in one of the pension’s guest rooms. What particularly intrigued us—besides the ability to position it just right for pre-bed reading (and collapse it neatly away when not in use)—was the light’s black finish and delicate pleated shade.

Where to find such a thing? We did some digging:

Mystery solved.
