Milan-based designer Silvia Stella Osella, for one, whose Antonym 2 pendant for Global Lighting features an ellipse-shaped bamboo wicker shade adorned with a botanical motif in black raffia, “woven using the Renaissance-era intreccio technique by master artisans in Mogliano.”

The combination of lighting design and artisanal craft makes for a compelling fixture, one in which the intricate embroidery reveals a floral pattern filled with light.
