The materials of the shade have different expressions and degrees of illumination. The white shade provides an even, general light in a pleasant white tone, whereas the birch veneer’s effect is warm, for a more mellow atmosphere.
Birch – Natural and Stained Tom Rossau birch lamellas are either untreated or stained. The same maintenance procedure applies to both variants. We only recommend cleaning birch veneer lamps using a dry dust brush.
Birch is a living material and the wood will naturally change shape a bit over time.
It is important that the material does not get in contact with water or moisture as this will soften the fibers of the wood and cause the veneer to bend. The colored birch stains when wet.
When you first receive your birch veneer lamp, the wood will appear bright and fresh. Over time, the birch gilds a little bit and gets a beautiful patina that highlights the wood veins. The stained models will be patinated in a slightly lighter tone.
Plastic (Polypropylene) Tom Rossau lamps made of plastic lamellas are relatively rewarding in terms of cleaning. The optimal cleaning is done by using a dry dust brush, but it is also possible to use the vacuum cleaner on low suction on these lamps with the brush head mounted. If preferred, it is possible to clean the slats with a hard-wrung cloth as well. It is a very durable and flexible material, which will keep its white color over time.
