Net Gains: 5 Fishing Baskets as Sculptural Lights

May 27, 2015

Call it net gains: Mesh and bamboo fish traps–and weavings inspired by them–make sculptural, softly glowing pendant lights. And you can create your own.

Above: Barcelona design duo Manolito & Manolita weave their Colimbo Lights from mesh fishing traps and cotton. Learn more in our post Go Fish Lighting, and inquire directly with M&M about pricing.

Above: A souvenir from Culburra House, a beachside rental in New South Wales, Australia, the Fish Trap Light Shade is for sale in two sizes: $135 AUD ($104.67 USD) for the small, and $700 AUD ($542.73 USD) for the large, shown. (For lights similar in feel, see Nelson Sepulveda’s designs at Home Stories in Brooklyn.)

Above: From a recent Bodie and Fou collection, the Long Bamboo Pendant Light was inspired by Thai fish traps; we hope they reintroduce it.

Above: The made-to-order Fisherman Lampshade, $1,500, by artist Tracy Wiklinson of TW Workshop can be any length. See more of her work in our post Rustic Handwoven Lamps from a Brit in LA.

More like this? We’re also big fans of Outsized Basket-Weave Pendant Lights and all sorts of Nautical Decor, including Rooms with Oars and DIY Rope Banisters.
