Gallery: SEAWEED LAMPS! Julia Lohmann’s Kelp Constructs


We are enchanted by Kelp Constructs, the new work from UK-based designer Julia Lohmann who has been experimenting with kelp, and exploring its potential as a sustainable material. Following an artistic residency at S-AIR in Sapporo Japan, Lohmann was in Milan this year conducting the Kelp Constructs workshop at the Nilufar Gallery. The final products, a collection of wonderfully tactile lighting designs, were on display during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, bringing this rapidly renewable material into a new design realm.

    Simply stunning works of art. Love your curled lamp fixtures. I too am wanting to try using kelp as a craft/art medium as it is so abundant and freely available on our beaches.

    I work with kelp and encaustic (beeswax and resins) one of the oldest painting methods. I also make kelp jewellery and art etc.
