Willow Lamps – South African Design

I got an email from Sian from the South African design studio Willow Lamp a few days ago.  Have you looked at these lamps?  I didn’t know about them until I got the email, but their work is stellar.  It’s two people, Sian Eliot and Adam Hoets.  From their about page:

The willowlamp â„¢ is the brainchild of the design duo ‘TeamTwo’ Adam Hoets and Sian Eliot.  Sian Eliot studied Industrial Design at the Cape Technikon and is also a jeweller.

She has established herself as a distinctive voice in the field of jewellery design through her innovative meshing of traditional skills with technology. She has a natural instinct and understanding for the materials she works with.

Adam Hoets is a registered Architect who has specialised in Eco Architecture since graduating from the University of Cape Town in 2000. His architectural projects have shown a flair for progressive and environmentally sensitive design — a focus that is continued in his collaborative work under the umbrella of Willowlamp.

Adam has an obsessive awareness of the intricacies of the willowlamp’s construction. This manifests in a tightly conceptualised and resolved final product that couples aesthetics and sensitivity with technical design.

Great work!  Keep us informed on what you have going on!
