PET Lamp Ethiopia
The Abyssinia collection rescues the most representative techniques and languages from Ethiopian traditional basket weaving. Local patterns, heavy and opac material, strong colors, and smooth shapes make PET Lamp Abyssinia a reflection of african character.

This creates strong horizontal lampshades, of weight and magnitude whose drawings freely chosen by the artisans reflect the cosmogony of their local culture.
