Grundtal’s Melodi

Materials: Grundtal rail, Melodi lamp

Description: I was sick of my Regolit lamp. The main reason I bought it was because it is cheap and does not look too awful. But after one year sitting under Regolit there was need for something new.

I wanted my new ceiling lamp to illuminate my table in a better way, so I decided it has to have at least three bulbs. I did not want to waste too much money, so I hang three 28cm-Melodi in a row.

It looked okay, but not like ONE ceiling lamp.

I had to combine all three parts to one, so I bought a 120cm Grundtal rail and drilled three holes in equal space to pull through the cables. Et voila: Grundtal’s Melodi was born.
