FIBER PATTERN LAMPS

The Fiber Pattern Lamps are a series of lights following from our experiments with robotic fiber weaving techniques. The technology is based on an Aerospace technology for making lightweight composite parts, such as rocket cases or fuel tanks. Seeing the beautiful geometrical fiber patterns on these industrial products inspired us to use these patterns in lighting and furniture designs. The first product we designed was the UFO, which is so light and open that it almost seems to float in the air. Inspired by its lightness we designed a special edition for the Salone in Milan 2016. This design is made with an Iridescent Black fiber, which has different colors from different view angles, mimicked from the Iridescent wings of the Dragon Fly. For the Salone 2017 we released a new design, the 'Out of Order'. The concept behind the Out of Order is that robots are always seen as the perfect workers, who follow our instructions. But what would happen if the robot at some day shows human like behavior and drifts away while working.....The fiber pattern of the Out of Order visualizes this transition showing a regular pattern at first, which slowly becomes more and more irregular until its completely out of order.

Currently we are experimenting with all types of new materials, shapes and patterns, and we are working on a few new designs. The robotic weaving technology we have developed enables us to make an endless range of shapes and geometrical fiber patterns. The possibilties seem endless and we have just began with experimenting...
