Weft pendant lights

February 9, 2011

The delicate Weft series of woven pendant lights, created by James Hargraves for the Melbourne Fringe Furniture exhibition.

Designer James Hargraves created the ‘Warp & Weft’ installation as part of the 2010 Melbourne Fringe Furniture event, held at the Newport Substation arts centre. Hargraves was designer-in-residence for the event, and created a series of woven pendant light shades called ‘Weft’ as part of the installation.

The oversized pendant shapes, woven from paper-thin polypropylene strips, are lightweight yet sturdy. The undulated surfaces of each design give the lights a structural rigidity – allowing the lights to keep their thin and delicate-looking skin. The Weft pendants are part of an ongoing exploration into digital design and fabrication techniques.
