Weave Your Lighting by Kwangho Lee

Weave Your Lighting is a project by Korean designer Kwangho Lee that is inspired by memories of his mother's knitting.

Below is an explanation of the project from Lee:


The biggest inspiration of this lighting is my mother's knitting hobbies during my childhood. Her knitted sweaters and gloves remind me of the good days of my childhood. I saw the neat pile of electric wires as yarns and soon decided to knit (weave) my own.

Rather than knitting with needles, I developed a new way of weaving the rubber but solid wires into long, scarf-like or brush-like form of lighting. They are weaved by one long wire, which varies in length-from 10 to 300meters.
