It was about 5,000 years ago, when a small caterpillar had already written cocoon history: the silkworm, the larva of the silkworm moth, builds a cocoon for pupation from a filament that is 900 metres long. it is performing the heaviest work in the process as it needs to wrap itself with up to 300,000 loops. To get 250g of silk thread in silk production. some 3,000 cocoons will be needed which is approximately equivalent to 1kg.

We have taken this method as a model for the production of our cocoon luminaires. Cocoon is designated as a unique special formula licensed by Eglo from which an exremely resilient and elastic material is produced. Models of any kind can be covered with a diaphragm. The variety of shapes allows almost infinite possibilities and only the sky is the limit in terms of designer creativity.

Cocoon production is carried out in 3 steps:

Webbing
True to the 'from the caterpillar to the butterfly' principle, the transformation process of a sober wire frame to a beautifully designed lighting fixture starts with the webbing process. In this process, the filament is sprayed onto the rotating frame until it is covered with the first layer of filaments.

Coating
Only a few hours later, the cocoon is ready for the second step of its transformation, the coating. For this a special coating material is being applied to the woven frame that combines with the filaments with the effect that the shade receives an extremely elastic skin. Already now the material is flexible enough to withstand being exposed to high levels of stress and is always able to regain its original form.

Finish
Finally, as crowning, the luminaire model will recieve a special varnish layer in addition. It protects the shade against soiling and can be cleaned using a wet cloth.

**All products are made to order and can take up to 3-6 weeks for delivery**

Understanding Brightness

When we all used incandescent bulbs it was so much easier to understand how bright a light bulb would be. Your choice was limited to a 40, 60, 75 and 100 watt bulbs, and a particular wattage gave out roughly the same amount of light irrespective of who made it; it's just unfortunate they wasted energy generating heat!

With the introduction of CFL and LED technology, understand brightness (measured in lumens) become confusing because these light bulbs give out the same brightness for a fraction of the energy consumed (measured in watts).

So when you need to know how bright a light is say hello to Lumens and goodbye to Watts.
