Skynest: weaving tradition and innovation
A poetic new lighting solution from Marcel Wanders
The new Skynest pendant lamp marks the Marcel Wanders return to the theme of the suspended dome, already explored in their best-selling Skygarden. The name both evokes that previous masterpiece and suggests a nest of light suspended in the sky while the lamp itself is a fascinating union of traditional craft with cutting-edge technology.
The clever modular design ensures sustainability too as Skynest can be entirely disassembled for repairs and recycling.
“Skynest poetically blends the tradition of handcrafted weaving with innovative lighting techniques to create a timeless piece of design”
comments Marcel Wanders on the creative process, which challenges the archetype of bulb lighting and offers a new perspective on woven lampshades by making the basket the source of light. The result is a surprising piece of design and a further bridge between two worlds that are increasingly entwined.
The Skynest lamp comes in four colours: Anthracite, as opposed to classic black; Almond, to replace traditional white; Brick, as a warm and vibrant option; and finally an elegant version in Tourmaline Blue. The lamp is also available in two variants, allowing for it to be ceiling mounted or suspended.
