Inspired by her drawings, Ana Kraš’ Bonbon Lamps are hand-woven using an original weaving technique to create textured, one-of-a-kind pieces. In her lampshade collaboration with HAY, she uses the same idea of wrapping cotton-wool yarn around powder-coated steel frames to create individual lampshades that vary slightly in their appearance and texture. The cord sets for the lamps are sold separately and are available in two designs – a table/floor variant with an in-line rocker switch, and a pendant variant for ceiling lamps. Both variants can be used with the two different lampshade sizes and are not supplied with a bulb.
HAY was founded in 2002 with the ambition to create contemporary furniture that uses sophisticated industrial manufacturing to satisfy the needs of modern living. Today, this fundamental goal remains their mission: through commitment to the design and production of furniture, lighting and accessories with an international appeal, they strive to make good design accessible to the largest possible audience. Inspired by the stable structures of architecture and the dynamics of fashion, HAY combines the values of both industries in durable, quality products that provide added value for the user. HAY’s continued vision is to create straightforward, functional and aesthetic design in cooperation with some of the world’s most talented, curious and courageous designers. This has resulted in many fruitful collaborations, and in 2018, HAY joined forces with American furniture company Herman Miller to deliver excellent design to a wide variety of customers and contexts.
