I just had to feature these spectacular lights by a Polish designer who goes by the name of Calabarte. He creates the most magical lighting effects with his unusual choice of material and the results are just breath-taking. The lamps are made from the gourd, which is an annual tropical vine originating in Africa and Asia. Its dried, lignified fruits are used for various decorative as well as practical purposes. Calabarte‘s lamps are made from this unique fruit through a process of manual perforation and framing. Using natural materials and the highest quality of craftsmanship Calabarte is able to create some unique effects. As the shape of the fruit is determined by nature, and the framing created manually, each lamp is one of a kind.
So what do you think? Amazing aren’t they?
