1970s Inspired Hand-Threaded Lanterns

Ana Kras - Design Ana Kras - Design Ana Kras - Design

Ana Kraš, born in Belgrade and based in NYC, uses basic structures and everyday materials to design “what people would need and like to use.” Her bonbon lamps or lanterns are handmade and no two are exactly alike. Kraš laboriously loops each bit of thread around the metal frames, creating a color-blocked pattern with a folk sensibility reminiscent of the 1970s.

In a recent feature by Avant Garde Interviews, Kraš suggests such careful repetitious attention is meditative, allowing her room to focus on the details or a “shy little gesture you try to add to a very basic thing.”

Kristine Five Melvaer’s Designer Lamps that Look like Plant Buds and Water Droplets

 

Kristine Five Melvær is a Norwegian designer who brings a really subtle, but affective approach to the table. This Bloom lamp series is great. Inspired by natural forms, the shades call to mind “buds, fruit, or water”. Each of the three lamps are a different height, which promotes a sense of organic incongruity.  The shades are made of canvas, which, though a possible fire hazard, goes along nicely with the earthy vibe of each piece.
