WEFT056 – IDEA 2020


WEFT056 is a large pendant light woven from paper-thin polypropylene strips. Using minimal material, the lamp is lightweight despite its size. The undulating surface topography gives the design its structural rigidity as well as visual interest. The production process is a marriage of handicraft and advanced digital techniques. A computer modelled design and numerically controlled cutter were used, with strips then interwoven and mounted on a stainless steel armature.
