Loom

Loom is a collection of organic textile pendant lamps utilising a new 3D woven polyester material designed by Benjamin Hubert for Swedish manufacturer Zero.

Loom by Benjamin Hubert for Zero

Originally used as a source of comfort in the bedding industry the 3D textile has never before been used in the lighting industry.

The textile can be stretched around complex forms and diffuses the light through its dense network of warp woven polyester fibers.

The Textile is offset and contrasted with a brightly lit polymer lens at the heart of each pendant.

The forms of the textile lamps reference traditional Chinese lanterns as a known reference point transformed with a new technological material.

    I can't help but imagine these lamps covered in dust, which would penetrate all of the holes.

    Furthermore the forms don't seduce me enough to overlook this issue.

    This guy is really good. Everytime I see his work its just better and better. I am very impressed with his work considering his age.

    I think this is a very original collection

    looks a bit like the inside of my reeboks

    Chav lamps! They match my shell-suit and compliment my gold chain nicely!

  • David

    Think there is a good reason that this material has never been used in lighting. As per the first comment, these are going to look pretty bad within weeks of being hung.

    I like some of his work but if this is representative of this year’s offering then fear we have a case of quantity over quality. Less is more Benjamin……..
