Handmade Sinamay Lightshade ‘Bloom’ – size small in natural/gold (one-off piece)

By Karen Henriksen


The ‘Bloom’ lightshade has been created from draped, undulating swirls of sinamay (banana fibre), hand-stitched onto a handmade sinamay drum. The drapery continues partially over the drum aperture, creating a diffuser integral to the design. The abstract and asymmetrical nature of the drapery gives the lightshade a slightly different appearance from all angles, and means that each one is unique. It can be fitted to a ceiling pendant or table lamp, without any adjustments - simply turn it downwards when hanging, or upwards for a table lamp.
