We are so excited that Willowlamp, South African award-winning lighting company created by Adam Hoets, has unveiled two new designs: The Geometric Storm and the Mandala No.2.
We have always loved Willowlamp, it produces highly intricate and uniquely decorative lights, made by attaching ball-chain to laser-cut steel frames. The creator, Adam Hoets, uses geometry and nature’s ‘blueprint’ as inspiration.
The two latest creations added to the collection were recently revealed at the 100% Design South Africa where Adam won the award for Best Lighting Design. Completely captivated by the intricacies of sacred geometry, Adam based the new design on sacred Islamic geometry.
Adam says, ‘I spent over 400 hours drawing and decoding Islamic patterns and geometry, until I nearly went mad. This, to me, was the ultimate template and key beneath all because it holds within it all of the principles of Islamic sacred geometry.’
Shorter in length, but with no shortage of detail, the result is a vibrant yet sophisticated masterpiece of complexities.
