The one downside to being at Passagen (click) in Cologne, was that we couldn't also be at Maison & Objet in Paris, taking place around the same time a few hundred kilometers away.
It would have been great to be in Paris while our friends from Ay Illuminate launched the new bamboo versions of the Wren & Kiwi lamps. We worked our hands to the bone finishing the series in time for the show and are super happy with the response so far/
What we love most about the Wren and Kiwi lamps is that they're all handmade in the Netherlands with sustainable materials.
The series started out with perforated strips of recycled aluminum, which turns a surprisingly sustainable corporate material into an unexpected warm glowing centerpiece.
The new bamboo lamps added to the series are more of a bridge between the contemporary first series and the airy eclectic athmosphere Ay Illuminate is so well known for.
The lamps are out now via Ay Illuminate, and will be added to our website and -shop soon.
We're bringing all Wren and Kiwi's with us to Object Rotterdam and are hoping to be able to shoot a few nice pictures in the gorgeous industrial HAKA building.
We'll update the website and add more photographs soon!
