Earlier this week we posted about designer Danica Wilcox’s interiors studio, Hito Home. As part of Hito, a creative lab out of Polleca in Mallorca, Spain, Danica designs a collection of experimental lighting in collaboration with painter Nicholas Woods.
Why lighting? “Necessity is the motherhood of invention,” says Danica. “We started making lights because we couldn’t find anything we liked.” Danica and Nicholas began working with brass parts from the US, vintage socket splitters, canvas, marble, plaster, and waxed pine. They experiment with painting lightbulbs and shades—the shades are made of canvas and Nicholas paints them as he would a painting. Lighting is available directly through Hito Home online and custom orders can be placed by contacting the studio.
