PET Lamp Mapuche
The Mapuche collection is bought to life in Huentelolen, a small village in the heart of Aracaunia region, home of the native Mapuche people. It explores a 500-years-old weaving technique, the “ñocha” native fibre and a highly social community.
The local patterns, the dominant natural colour of the ñocha fibre and the spacious structure of the weaving technique formed a window through which we could appreciate the sheer range of possibilities afforded to us by this complex material. The lamp’s robust and generous form is a reflection of the Mapuche people’s strong character and their intimate link with nature. As a finishing touch, all lamps are fortified by a wide horizontal band, imprinting them with a touch of personality.
Curiously, the Mapuche craftspeople share the same complex “coiled” basketry technique as our Ethiopian artisans, imprinting their personal stories and dreams into each lamp of this collection, stitch by stitch.
