Called Nymph’s Lamps, each one is handcrafted out of coconut by drilling thousand of precise holes into the shell. The body is then covered in suede and attached to a flexible steel base so you can bend the lamp to create a variety of different of light effects. The lamps are called Nymphs because, according to artist, they are not just used for lighting up the room, but also to bring a sense of coziness and a romantic mood to the space. It’s seductive illumination inspired by nature.
