15 Years of willowlamp – Iconic Chandeliers Light up Retrospective Exhibition of Leading Local Design

Over the last decade and a half, art lighting company willowlamp has created a substantial body of work – a veritable library of remarkable designs and memorable silhouettes. Over time, the style of the designs has evolved too, from Creative Director Adam Hoets’ first iterations exploring sacred geometry and forms found in nature, to newer, more contemporary pieces that demonstrate a cleaner, more contemporary sensibility.

Capture d’écran 2019-06-19 à 10.13.09willowlamp’s latest collection, launched late in 2018, sees Hoets come full circle with new lights that combine these attributes – they are both contemporary as well as informed by his first sources of inspiration.

What remains true for all the brand’s designs, from day one to present, is a commitment to craft and a considered and conceptual approach. This gives the pieces enormous gravitas in an interior space and makes them iconic in their own right – modern heirlooms for future generations of design lovers.

Capture d’écran 2019-06-19 à 10.13.26With a large number of these pieces – from old to new – in the same location for a very limited time, willowlamp wanted to take the opportunity to show off the breadth and variety of its work over the years.

In order to do this, willowlamp is inviting the public to come and see this impressive array of pieces on display in the very place they are crafted – in the studio in Cape Town.

Capture d’écran 2019-06-19 à 10.13.51To further celebrate this landmark moment, and the gathering of archival and current pieces, the samples will also be available for purchase at greatly reduced rates. While the samples have been gently used at design shows – such as Euroluce at this year’s Milan Design Week; at Downtown Design in Dubai and at 100% Design South Africa – they are still in showroom condition.
