Australian designer Brad Stebbing has created the Samba lamp for HIVE. Visually mimicking dancing hips, Samba’s curves bring life into any interior.
Samba works great in clusters, but feels just as comfortable dancing solo.Hand-crafted from rattan, a sustainable, natural material, Samba is crafted using a new take on a traditional Vietnamese process.
Rather than using strips of bamboo, the lampshades are coiled using rattan rods. As the rattan is thicker and requires far fewer coils, the process is much more efficient and requires much less finishing.
The thicker coils also create a very distinct look on the inside of the lampshades which result in the crafted process being visually expressed in the aesthetic.
