PET Lamp Chimbarongo
Fulfilling one of the pivotal theses of the project; to address the global problem of PET plastic bottles waste through the local work of traditional textile crafts, PET Lamp presents Chimbarongo: Our second collection made in partnership with wicker artisans from central Chile.
Taking advantage of the structural properties of wicker, the warp created by the plastic allows us to develop models that balance volume and lightness, leading to the creation of a series of lamps that exude elegance and feel at home in any environment.
PET Lamp Chimbarongo Making Of
The antagonism of the driest desert in the world and the majestic ice fields of Chilean Patagonia find their balance in the central valley of this 4,329 km long country.
The pleasant climate and the fertility of its soil make the central zone of the country an ideal place for the planting and harvesting of willow. Its initial flexibility and stiffness after drying have made this fibrous plant a celebrated staple in the construction of furniture, baskets and other objects in many diverse cultures throughout the ages.
Chimbarongo has recently been afforded well deserved recognition for one of its traditional industries, and it is now known as “The Wicker Capital”.
With the help and support of the Chilean design studio Si Studio, we wanted to bring our project to this community of craftsmen, not from the perspective of a link in the chain of production but rather a harmonious integration that allows us to enter into the families and to get to know the origin and possibilities of the material. It also permits the development, in conjunction with the artisan, of a unique product with its own personality and high design values.
