Stitches Bamako Suspension Light

by LZF


The Stitches Bamako Suspension Light, designed by Egbert-Jan Lam from Netherlands-based Burojet Design Studio for LZF, is part of the "embroidered" Stitches family of lights. These 2 lights are called Bamako and Tombuctú, after towns and cities in the West African nation of Mali.  Each light has its own distinct pattern.  In order to craft each light, veneer strips are "stitched" 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 manufacturer of embroidery.

Stitches is collection of suspension lights.
