Innermost Kobe Pendant Light or Shade
Kobe is a flat pack fabric shade by Russell Cameron for innermost. Our simple drum shades have several clever differences. A selection of high quality materials such as 100% wool and specially created synthetics for that sophisticated fit anywhere feel you can see. The edge to edge cotton diffuser that gives a completely clean look you can also appreciate immediately.
What you can’t see is that our Kobe shades arrive flat packed in a pizza style box; so transport costs are low and large shades arrive in perfect condition. It takes an honest 20-30 seconds to assemble one. It’s possible because we use a memory foam on the inside rather like those squishy ear plugs you get on airlines. The structure snugly presses the foam and the foam expands against the structure. Simple and very reliable.

The Designer: Russell Cameron studied Industrial Design at Napier University in his native Scotland. In 1999 Cameron co-founded Innermost with Steve Jones. Previously he had worked for various consultancy and in-house design studios. In these diverse roles he built a wealth of experience as a manufacturing expert. It is this production expertise that has helped drive numerous projects at Innermost and bring designs that may have been shelved into reality. He is very involved in production processes today and continues to find new and exciting British manufacturers for the company’s production needs.
In 2016 Russell was appointed as a LIA Council Member (the UK’s Lighting Industry Association) and as an ACID Advisory Council Member (Anti Copying In Design is a fantastic British organisation committed to raising Intellectual Property awareness & eliminating IP rights abuse). Both Cameron & Jones are well known visitors to student and satellite shows around the world as they look for new designers with the next generation of ideas.
The Brand: Innermost’s rebellious approach to lighting and furniture comes from a shared anarchic pursuit of design freedom, a belief that you have to embrace the absurd in order to innovate. So innermost has innovation and a little absurdity at it’s core; working with designers from all corners of the globe to create beautifully unique products of the absolute highest quality, since 1999.
