Three years ago, Spanish industrial designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocón was invited at an environmental project in Colombia. Impressed by the local culture of the Amazon and sensitized by the issue of pollution caused by plastic bottles, he decided to develop a project that would somehow go against the use of materials that are harmful for the nature. Local artisans using an ancient method began to sew and knit by hand lampshades that were made of fabrics and materials from the Colombian Amazon. Two years later, Pet lamp was ready by adding a cilindrical adornment made of iron to each individual lampshade and cables exclusively designed for these unique light pieces. The presentation of the Pet lamp in the international design fairs was a huge success!
Every lampshade that is made is unique and the combination of them with the cables make them even more personalized lighting installations. The custom process doesn’t stop here. You can choose your own combination of colours for the cable and lampshade and also order the lamp the set in any height you want for your space!
A brand new product that arrives soon at Oikos!
