Founder of South African designer light company willowlamp, Adam Hoets, creates a vast range of intricate lighting designs that include lamps, pendants and chandeliers.
Hoets’ work is inspired by nature and sacred geometry and can be found in a large range of venues that include retail, hospitality and commercial establishments. Willowlamp recently released their latest designer light which is named the A-peal pendant.
The inspiration behind this particular design was the simple everyday beauty of a naartjie peel – the irregular rind of the peeled fruit inspiring the playful curved shape.
‘I decided that the new collection needed to include beautiful and sculptural lighting designs that were accessible to a wider audience - not everyone who wants a statement piece has the space for something on the larger end of the scale,’ said Hoets.
‘While we were working on the piece in the factory I noticed how when the chains were cut and dropped down, they created another tier, so we decided to do two versions – a single and a double tier,’ he explains.
The A-peal comes in silver, brass, copper, smoke, rust, white, red, black and mixed metallic. Illuminated by a single G9 Halogen or 3W LED lamp within a Pyrex glass ball, the piece is available in one- or two-tier options, measuring 950mm and 1 950mm respectively.
