Loop Lamps are a collection of lighting designs that merge craft with technology by combining hand-knit paper yarn with LEDs. The lamps are designed to be sculptural, functional and energy-efficient. Loop Lamps are an exploration of how tradition and craft (knitting) can merge with technology (LEDs) in the creation of functional artisan objects.
The soft lampshade forms were hand-knit and crocheted with Finnish paper yarn by local artisans. With the use of LED technology, Loop Lights are lightweight, emit less heat than conventional bulbs, and can be used in exploratory lighting design.
