High/Low: Nautical Rope Light

Issue 80 · The Summer Bedroom · July 10, 2013

On a trip to Droog in Amsterdam a while back, I admired (and coveted) the Flax Five Light designed by Christien Meindertsma for Thomas Eyck. Drawing on the traditions of the Dutch sixteenth-century cordage industry, Meindertsma works with flax, which is twisted into strands and incorporated into products—such as rope lighting.
