These smoothly sculpted Loom pendant lamps [1] are made from a new woven organic polyester material developed by Benjamin Hubert [2] for Swedish manufacturer Zero. The polyester was originally sourced from the bedding industry, and the finished textile [3] is surprisingly versatile — it is strong enough to be stretched around complex forms, but transparent enough to diffuse the light through its dense network of fibers. The lovely lamps offer a new spin on traditional Chinese lanterns, making them a perfect way to add a soft source of light to any space.
