Drawstring Lamp by Design Stories and Returhuset
Gothenburg-based studio Design Stories have created the Drawstring lamps in collaboration with Returhuset. The lamps are made of waste material from local factories. The Drawstring lamps are available in two sizes, a medium sized pendant lamp and small sized pendant and standing table lamp.
From the designers, “All the materials in the lamps are reused or recycled. The fabric in Drawstring Lamp is made by Svensson Markspelle, originally used as a sun screen which filters the light beautifully and therefore is well suited for lighting products. Additionally the textile has a structure that allows it to be self-supporting in an organic yet symmetrical way. The legs in the table lamp comes from bicycle spokes and the wood is scraps from a carpenters workshop.
As we wanted to make an outstanding design with crafted and unique details we sought ourselves to Göteborg’s Belt Factory, to design fabric cords that complement the lamp shade. The textile cables have a three colored dotted pattern reminiscent of the classic textile cable but more three dimensional in its look. The wooden parts that hold the lamp together both work as a constructional component, decoration and as a practical feature if you want to shorten the cable.”
