Gabbia Lamp

industry+  2014

For this lamp collection our focus was on mixing both traditional and industrial techniques. We wanted to create a unique combination of shadows and colors by using materials from different sources. The shapes are inspired by inverted baskets.

For the table lamp version we kept the handle which allows the user to carry it easily.
This pieces were produced in a bamboo weaving atelier in Kyoto, which is specialized in small scale objects. Since this artisan only works with bamboo, we thought that could be interesting to introduce a new material in there daily work. The choice of colored acetate is not banal, its properties of transparency, strong colors and lightweight were the perfect fit for this project.

Project in collaboration with Rui Pereira.

This product is available from industry+.
