Bobbin Lace Lamps

New Lighting Design

Woven lace lampshades of fibre optic filaments create a fairy-tale feel. Combining traditional craftsmanship with a high-tech material adds a new dimension to lighting. Where the filaments are knotted, they break, releasing the light. The thousands of resulting luminous strands transform the lampshade into a light source: the lampshade is the lamp. Bobbin Lace Lamps are handmade to measure and are available in various models.
