Ropes Lamp by Christian Haas
ROPES is a new series of lamps launched this week at Colette, Paris. The idea behind the lamps was to combine LED-technology with a innovative soft look and textile appeal. Unlit, the lamps provide a graphic statement to their environment. Lit, they diffuse a gentle ambient light. Each piece is unique, numbered and varies in size and technique. ROPES are handmade in France and Germany.
