Ebb Family

About Ebb Family

The original design for the Ebb family came from the sketches of light-play on water ripples that David observed on his travels. Ebb is all about a directional arc that arrays around four different design forms. Ebb lights were first launched as fully assembled lamps made from plastic and wood components. In 2015 they were first re-designed as kitset which reduced the effects of shipping. In 2020 they were launched again and now the Ebb family of Swell, Bounce, Roll and Drop are made from ultra thin (0.7mm) Finnish birch plywood. They emit a glowing lantern effect which also highlights the grain of the ply. A much more sustainable feature pendant light!

  • Shipped in environmentally friendly packaging.
  • Easy assembly at home via PDF or online video.
  • One size in each of the four designs.
  • Natural birch ply only.
  • Comes with cord and bulb holder (and ceiling canopy for North American orders).
  • E26/E27 lamp/bulb required, see more info here.
  • Intended for dry interior spaces.

Kitset Design

Shipping as kitset vastly reduces the harmful effects of moving items around the globe. On average our kitset lights are 1/40th the size of an assembled one.

How do I choose a light?

Not sure which light to buy? We can give you some advice about designs and sizes. Our lights are a larger than other options on the market, and are intended to be large features. Being thin plywood, they look much smaller once they are installed too and our clients often say they'd wished they'd gone slightly bigger. Read our full FAQ section by following the arrow below.
