A series of experimentation in fabrics behavior towards light, the Misha series, labelled #1 to #4 consists of four ingeniously designed table lamps. Square pieces of white fabric dipped in fabric hardener are hung from their edges.
Then from certain key points the fabric is pulled up and weights are placed in the resulting creases. This is now left to dry and harden as a structure. This is now taken and placed upside down and places in a plastic tube containing a bulb with metal wires.
The resulting effect is elegant medley of light and shade. Even when turned off, the lamps act as flowing sculptural pieces which will be a striking addition to any interior.
Using white fabric made of 100% post-consumer plastic bottles, the project is remarkable for its simplistic innovation and also serves as a study for application of fabric as a lighting accessory. Another similar series called the Pina #1 to #3 is also available.
