This Post Was Updated On
Inspired by the book Gulliver’s Travels, this lamps and screen collection is truly phenomenal. It brings to mind the people of Lilliput who the explorer met when he visited their island nation. Designer Kenneth Cobonpue uses metal rods to make tiny people. Afterwards, he coats the shapes with Salago fiber then entwines them to make the lamp and screen covers. The fiber covers the metal to improve its texture and to create endless possibilities for playful creativity. To make the fiber durable and water-resistant, he mixes it with concrete bond.
Exuding character effortlessly, the Little People Lamps and Screen Collection by Hive epitomizes the playful nature of the Little People in Gulliver’s Travels. The suspension lamps cross the borders in design to make lighting a work of art. They enclose light sources beautifully and innovatively. They are an intentional understatement in lighting design and have the ability to fill large voids without overwhelming the environment. The lamps are ideal for both residential and commercial spaces.
Kenneth Cobonpue is a popular designer renowned worldwide for his organic creations made from natural fibers and materials.
