"[We] drew this new collection in the same spirit as the previous one, which makes the brand signature - light wood, patterns and fresh colours reminding travel and holidays throughout the year," said the designers.

The Swarm lamps comprise a metal frame covered with a layer of coloured fabric behind a honeycomb mesh, pulled in at the top and bottom with drawstrings. The lamps sit on three spindly legs, either long or short, and also come as a pendant version.
