The Others lanterns by Stephen Burks for Dedon

Dezeen Showroom: American designer Stephen Burks has designed a collection of hand-woven outdoor lights for Dedon that can be used individually or arranged in totem-like stacks.

Called The Others, the collection comprises 12 lanterns of different sizes, which either stand on a milled marble base or are hung like pendants.

According to Dedon, the lanters were designed to "take on the appearance of illuminated characters" and can be adorned with eye-shaped acrylic appliques to enhance their anthropomorphic qualities.

"We wanted to make them a kind of family, so they're similarly woven but each unique," said Burks.

The lamps are hand-woven in the Philippines and provide warm, atmospheric lighting that is dimmable via remote control.

"A collection at once functional and fun, The Others bring colour, diversity, illumination and companionship to any outdoor setting," Dedon added.
