The feather lamp from UMAGE
EOS is the lamp that well and truly put UMAGE on the map, and its floating romantic expression makes it completely unique. EOS is made using goose feather, a different and lively material—and the story of its creation is one of chance.
”The concept was to find a new approach to lamps that encompassed the Danish ‘hygge’. We wanted a soft and lively expression—something you want to touch when you see it. At the time, we had another project that called for feathers, but we could only buy them by the kilogram, so I asked if I could borrow some—and that was how the idea for EOS, UMAGE’s popular feather lamp, came about.”

UMAGE is a brand that prides itself on an environmentally conscious approach, but they don’t take things further than necessary—it has to make sense. As a result, most of their products are flat-packed, which minimises the need for packaging, reduces storage costs for the brand and its customers, and reduces shipping costs, all of which helps preserve the environment.
But this approach extends to the brand’s materials and choice of suppliers too. Whether it’s a new supplier or a new material, the brand takes the time to find the perfect match. It’s important that the supplier can prove that their materials and production methods are eco-friendly. The brand only uses 100% recycled fabrics, and their goal is to only produce reusable products by 2022.
The lovely packaging can be repurposed as storage boxes, and the aim is for all packaging to be reusable by the end of 2021.
And that’s not all! Every time UMAGE sells a wooden lamp or piece of furniture, they plant a tree. So, when you buy a wooden lamp, a new tree is planted to help take care of the earth.
