Porcini Lamps by memaké

July 11, 2009

memaké is a collaboration between Jaquie Hagan and Madeleine Potter. The two interior designers are based in Adelaide, Australia, and have recently created the Porcini Lamp collection.

From the designers:

The Porcini range grew from a subtle exploration into the elegantly simple form of the mushroom. A series of organic shapes and forms were reinterpreted to form these beautifully crafted and sustainable pieces. Bringing the role of artisan back into design, the Porcini design represents a spirit of craft and the handmade.

The range consists of two designs, the Porcini Stem, comprised of a standard lamp and table lamp, and the Porcini Canopy, comprised of various sized pendant lamps. The lamp shades across the entire Porcini range are interchangeable, to achieve multiple size combinations. Using naturally sustainable materials; Tasmanian Oak, a non-endangered timber species sourced from Australian sustainable forests finished with natural Australian beeswax, and 100% pure new wool upholstery, which is both biodegradable and renewable.
