• Wicker lamp collection
  • Made in Mimbre

The Medusa lamps, with their oval-shaped lampshades, appear to balance on numerous thin, spindly supports. Rather than trimming the excess lengths of wicker, as is usually done, we have kept them and hidden three, thin metal legs amongst them. The resulting designs reminded us of jellyfish, floating, with their many trailing tendrils.

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.
