Contemporary Italian lighting designer, Oçilunam, has created the unique Trame collection for in-es artdesign – out of fabric. Inspired by the moon and it’s “lunar matter” – his subject is interwoven with the concept of light. In this collection, textiles — and textures — are key. The shades are fashioned of handmade knitted fabric and the shape is then fixed in place with fire-retardant resin. The lamps come in different shapes but all use 100% wool in their creation. The knitted cone styles come in a palette of earthy colors and have an almost corduroy look. Use a single pendant, or group one of each color together for a stunning show of color and light. The bulbous white lamps (below) are reminiscent of crocheted bonnets – somehow retaining their soft knitted look while rigid and solid to the touch. These ‘crocheted’ lamps cast a mesmerizing pattern of shadows on the wall. And while white goes with everything, you can give them some extra personalization by choosing the color of cord: blue, red, yellow, gold, white, or fluorescent orange. Whichever your choice – the corduroy stripe or crochet knit — mixing fabric and light is an idea whose time has come.
