Sarah Dehandschutter exploits the tension of fabric stretched to its extremes over bended rods. This leads to light sculptures with a natural elegance that have a unique soft and streamlined character. The fluent organic lamps look different from every angle, suggesting lightness and ongoing movement.

The lights are made directly by stretching two layers of specially developed polyester tricot around an aluminum frame, creating a hollow volume. The knitted streched fabric is semi transparent, creating attractive lines and a rich moiré effect.

A copper wire can also be knitted along the length, accentuating the moiré effect and adding a warm golden coloured glow.

A warm white LED strip is incorporated in the frame. The lamp is so illuminated from its outer edges, equally dispersing the light throughout the volume, producing a pleasant, diffuse glow.
