Inspired on the Mediterranean basketry, URO explores traditional technique of braiding palm within a new context, lighting. Consisting of two lights, a pendant and a portable one, URO lamps collection are hand made from palm leaves braided and sewn together to incorporate the use of strips of LEDs.

Komade (made in collaboration) is a project based on an artisan-designer partnership that aims to research and update traditional craft. Concerned with globalisation and loss of community identity, we aim to help update craft by improving the process and fitting it within new lifestyle needs.
