Upside Down Ice Cream Cones Or Simple Lighting?
View Slideshow

Schneid, a company in Northern Germany founded by two designers, has developed a simple lighting system, called Eikon, that’s outfitted with interchangeable metal shades. A wooden base, made of ash, oak, or bamboo, comes with hidden magnets that let you swap the Basic lampshade for the Shell or Bubble lampshades.

The Basic lampshades come in black, mint, or white, with sleek textile cables and a wooden base in the wood of your choice. It kinda looks like a delicious upside down ice cream cone, doesn’t it?
