Quentin is a pendant lamp shade that uses the translucency of paper pulp to produce a subtle night-time glow. It is designed and manufactured by The VK&C Partnership. The lamp is manufactured from recycled mill waste, the wet paper pulp is vacuum-drawn through a porous mould on to which the pulp solidifies. The moulding is then transferred from the machine and dried. Quentin won the title of best consumer product in the Design Week Awards 1999 and the best use of paper prize in the Scottish Design Awards 1999. A Royal Bank of Scotland grant will go towards the tooling needed for the second version of the lamp.
