LOOP LAMP Collection

Loop Lamps are a collection of lighting designs that infuse hand-knit sculptural forms with LEDs. The lamps are designed to be functional and energy-efficient. Loop Lamps are an exploration of how tradition and craft (knitting) can merge with technology in the creation of functional artisan objects.

The soft lampshade forms were hand-knit and crocheted with Finnish paper yarn by local artisans."Paper yarn is a renewable resource with great natural characteristics, and I wanted to explore how it could be used in lighting design. It’s biodegradable, durable, lightweight, anti-odour, and doesn’t collect dust or dirt. It’s really just a beautiful material with a timeless simplicity.”
