DESIGN BY JOHAN VON HENGEL FOR HAY
30degree is a lightweight shade made of laminated oak veneer. The seamless surface is achieved by aligning the ends of semicircular veneer sheets at a 30degree angle, so the inside cone and internal angle is always 30 degrees. The layering of the conical veneer creates a solid shade that is opaque and characterized by its harmonious woodgrain pattern. Rich in tactility, the series express a natural elegant aesthetic. All shades are sealed with a matt lacquer and supplied with a molded locater fitting, which levels and supports the shade when suspended.
