Lighting: High/Low Rope Light

August 11, 2011

On a recent trip to Droog in Amsterdam, 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 then twisted into strands and incorporated into products—such as rope lighting. For a similar look, Toronto-based Atelier 688 offers the Atelier 688 Manila Rope Light. See below for sources.
