Design & Fit

  • Handwoven and crafted in natural rattan fibres by a Balinese family in their traditional workshop – this versatile, fast-growing material also has fantastic sustainability credentials.
  • The sculptural shape will add a contemporary or style statement to any room and looks great displayed singularly or grouped together in a mix-and-match design.
  • The unique woven design of the natural fibres creates a beautiful finish, and the light is softly diffused through the gaps, casting stunning patterns on the ceiling and around the room for a cosy ambience.
  • It’s extremely easy-to-fit and looks amazing with a warm-glow lightbulb (ideally warm white LED). The shade can be fitted to any pendant light fitting and comes with a shade reducer ring.
  • Limited assembly is required. Wiring and bulb not included, also requires a bulb.
Rattan is a fast-growing vine abundant in Indonesia, which makes it a very sustainable material
