Almost as if they have been nipped and then pulled, four ‘feet’ appear to have been stretched from the bottom edge of the Chinita lamps. We think that the gesture results in a series of lamps with a cute, creature-like character. Like small, friendly bugs. Like ladybirds, for example.
The Andes House, with their Made in Mimbre label, manufactures beautiful lighting collections in Chile. They employ local artisans to create contemporary objects in a professional context and in so doing preserve their traditional wicker-weaving techniques. The quality of the light from within their lamps is fantastically warm and atmospheric.
