Here comes the bride (lamp)

Finding plastic a little boring, designer Leva Kaleja opted for a more delicate paper approach in creating these “bride” pendant, table and floor lamps. 

“The atmosphere created by the bride is feminine and airy; this most definitely a lamp with a gender.” 

Each lamp  has it own personality based on the unique pattern woven by the weaver. The bride lamp is one of a number in the Mammalampa collection. Mammalampa’s manifesto in creating its designs “declares a gentle war making lamps differently without adapting, killing or violently beautifying materials. Our lamps are created in the image of living materials touched by the inspiration of craftsmen”.
