They are now selling in Paris, New York and Anthropology got also their ceramics in the collection. You can see their beautiful range of products on their web.

These beautifuls lamps are from the design duo ‘Team2’, Adam Hoets and Sian Eliot.
These young an talented designers are based in Cape Town, were they produce their lamps as well. They industrially manufacture the elements but each lamp is painstakingly hand-assembled. Each of the hundreds of chain strands are cut and attached by hand.
