Fiela Feather Lights by Haldane Martin

Design Indaba 08: South African designer Haldane Martin showed two lamps with ostrich-feather shades at the Design Indaba Expo in Cape Town last month.


Fiela Feather Arc Light (top two images) is a freestanding lamp while Fiela Feather Chandelier (below) is, you guessed it, a chandelier.


Martin explains: "Fiela Feather Lights are named after Dalene Mathews book 'Fiela se Kind'.This heart warming South African story is set in Oudtshoorn, the same ostrich farming district where the sort white feathers that form the spherical diffuser are sourced from."
