Considered to be a common material for making wicker-baskets and garden furniture, the designers where inspired by the idea of working with an element with bad reputation, but known to everybody – as mimbre is already present in 80% of Chilean households.
Six lighting objects, standing and hanging, are part of the collection that also includes magazine racks and seats. The lamps, all named with a different letter and in alphabetic order, could be hung on their own or together as a chandelier. Some wicked hanging domes will no doubt become the room’s main feature.
The Andes House not only makes new pieces from wicker, but their collection incorporates a wide range products made from other local materials. Just one month ago they presented their new pieces at Milan Design Week, exhibiting the warm light of their Member collection, which also draws from local resources like stone, wool, copper and clay. They work from a “Shop – Office“ space doing design, architecture and interior decorations.
