Mandala by Willowlamp

Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, lighting company Willowlamp was founded in 2005 by architect Adam Hoets and industrial designer Sian Eliot while they were running a small design studio called TeamTwo. They began to combine Hoets’s experimentations in creating woven spheres and curtains with ball chains with Eliot’s work in laser-cut jewelry. One of the duo’s most recent collections, Mandala, represents how the company has evolved.

The lamp’s sculptural form is a result of the company’s manufacturing technique, which allows ball chains to be attached to notches in laser-cut steel shapes. Now a registered patent of Willowlamp, the notching system allows the lamp to be free of fasteners. Mandala is inspired by Islamic patterns translated into a 3-D form with laser-cut stainless steel frames, chrome-plated or lacqured solid brass components, and ball chains in a range of colors. The piece is illuminated by a combination of surface-mounted and suspended G4 Halogen lamps.

About the Manufacturer: Willowlamp is an innovative, award-winning South African lighting company whose products are anchored in one simple yet very ingenious idea: a patented method of attaching ball-chain to laser-cut steel frames. A tiny notch in the metal frame is the key to creating a fastener-free chain curtain system, which unleashes endless design possibilities. These range from very simple sleek lampshades that are relatively affordable to massive, highly complex sculptural art forms and custom chandeliers that are appropriate for huge projects at even the most extreme highend of the market.
