The Stitches Bamako Suspension Light is the creation of Egbert-Jan Lam of Netherlands-based Burojet Design Studio and is part of the "embroidered" Stitches family of lights. These 4 lights are called Mopti, Tombuctú, Djenné and Bamako, after towns and cities in the West African nation of Mali. Each light has its own distinct pattern. In order to make each light, veneer strips are crafted in a traditional sewing fashion: the pattern is marked out, cut and then repeated. Where hemming is normally used to complete a garment, the Stitches light has a visible hemstitch pattern, which radiates once the light is switched on.
The distinctive shape of each Stitches light is an allusion to the adobe mosques found across Mali. Moreover, the Stitches lights embody Mali’s long history as a producer of embroidery.
Each Stitches suspension light is available in 11 different wooden finishes, thus providing endless options for customisation.
