A knitted lamp reminding of a traditional lamp one
Much lighter and colorful, it is a playful piece of design for any apartment or studio
The Knitted Lamp, a creation of Studio Meike, boasts a composition of polyester yarn and acrylic elements. This unique luminary presents a transparent knitted design that encapsulates the familiar silhouette associated with conventional lamps.
Crafted by being stretched across an acrylic frame, the pliable material assumes the role of the lamp’s body through tension, resulting in an appearance that is both luminous and exquisitely delicate.
When placed within a room, the lamp’s transparency interplays with surrounding objects, casting an almost ethereal, ghost-like impression. To ensure a distinct silhouette, the mesh is securely fastened beneath the lamp shade and pedestal, providing a defined and striking contour.
Remarkably, the stretchable material retains its uniform surface at all times. Unlike typical textiles, it remains free from wrinkles, maintaining its pristine appearance. Instead, the knitted structure can be subtly altered, transitioning between a lighter, more open mesh and a tightly woven configuration by adjusting the diameter of the knit.
This adaptability adds a fascinating dimension to the lamp’s aesthetics, allowing it to harmonize effortlessly with varying interior design preferences.
As a result, the Knitted Lamp not only challenges the boundaries of conventional design but also invites us to reimagine the interplay of light, texture, and form in our living spaces.
