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.
Working with Edra from the start, Italian designer Francesco Binfaré has produced some of the brand's classics, including the recent Pack and Chiara sofa.
