Nautilus lamp shade designed by Rebecca Asquith
Inspired by a nautilus seashell, the kit-set Nautilus hanging lampshade rolls back into itself to mimic the complex organic form of the nautilus shell.
When the lamp is switched on, light filters through the layers of timber to give a warm glow and provide soft illumination to the surrounding area. A beautiful pattern is draped over surrounding surfaces, contouring and subtly activating your space. From its flat-packed state, the Nautilus can easily be assembled within minutes to create a stunning feature lampshade.

Designtree began late one night in a small studio in industrial Wellington. Rebecca and Tim were both running our own design practises from our shared studio. “Why not just amalgamate it all into one entity?” Rebecca asked. Tim read between the lines and a few months later asked her to marry him. She said yes but she was also serious about joining their companies together.
They are now growing to collaborate with other designers and institutions to build a solid body of thoughtful and beautiful work.
Designtee is a flexible design studio. Rebecca and Tim work with established and emerging designers as well as graduates to keep things fresh. It’s an exciting and diverse place to be – the work is often challenging but seldom boring.
