With their vibrant colors and gracious forms, these OMI pendant lamps prove that elegant design and sustainability can go hand-in-hand. Working with surplus material [1] from the fashion industry (mostly mercerized cotton and silk), British textile and product designer Naomi Paul [2] has created a stunning collection of pendant lamps that convey a sense of both luxury and environmental awareness.

The OMI lamps are, in the designer’s words, “handcrafted [3] minimal flat pack pendants that evolved from the desire to create lighting that is timeless, playful and quietly opulent.” Handcrafted using traditional crochet techniques [4] and outfitted with Plumen low-energy light bulbs, the light fixtures emit a soft glow that accentuates the elegant forms and radiant colors of the finely woven yarn. The Omi pendants are available in limited edition colorways that change with the seasons. Numerous variations of the lamps (both in color and shape) can be ordered online.
