Rocks, bamboo and paper banners. Lightweight is like a traditional Japanese garden; a small contemplation on light, objects, energy and nature.

The Lightweight collection started with the idea to develop an alternative to shipping heavy lamp bases around the world. With the Lightweight collection, you can use heavy objects that you have at home to balance these lamps. The baskets are designed to hold stones, books, perfume bottles, plants, postcards or other collections. 

The light’s stem is made of a bamboo cane that was grown in Scotland.
The wire baskets and joints are made in Yorkshire.
The cable is made in London as well as the copper plating.
The fabric soft-boxes are made in Wales.
The cable clips and assembly is done in our studio.

This studio-produced collection includes a table, desk, and hanging light as well as floor lights.
