PET Lamp Making of
The antagonism of the driest desert in the world and the majestic ice fields of Chilean Patagonia find their balance in the central valley of this 4,329 km long country.
The pleasant climate and the fertility of its soil make the central zone of the country an ideal place for the planting and harvesting of willow. Its flexibility and later its stiffness after drying have made this fibrous plant very highly regarded in the construction of furniture, baskets and other objects in many diverse cultures throughout the ages.
In the last few years Chimbarongo has seen the recognition of one of its most diffused and traditional industries, and it is now known as “The Wicker Capital”.
With the help and support of the chilean design studio Si Studio, we wanted to bring our project to this community of craftsmen, not from the perspective of a link in the chain of production but rather a harmonious integration that allows us to enter into the families and to get to know the origin and possibilities of the material. It also permits the development, in conjunction with the artisan, of a unique product with its own personality and high design values.
