"I tried to give shape to the idea in the most minimal way possible and it was only afterwards that I realised it looked a bit like a torch," De Coster told Dezeen. "But it is fun, and I like to refer to archetypes in my work."
A second length of cabling attached towards the bulb connects to the first cable via a small sliding device, which can be moved up and down to change the angle of the light .
This adjustable noose is similar to those used by cowboys to catch cattle, giving the lamp its name.
"I wanted to create a poetic light that invites users to interact with it," said De Coster. "I thought about the cable and thought that it is crazy that it is used just to bring the energy, so I decided to give it another function."
The lights are made of a powder-coated steel tube, cut using computer numerically controlled (CNC) technology.
The black electric cable can measure up to 4.8 metres long and attaches to the ceiling via a powder-coated steel ceiling rose in the same colour.
This fixture can either be circular for a single light or linear to hold one at each end.
"I try to transform daily common gestures and needs into desirable moments of existence," De Coster said. "My products are made of new, authentic, playful things that help us to furnish our life with meaningful details."
