Strong, flexible and one of the world's fastest growing plants – bamboo has many uses that make it an excellent renewable material. It’s a type of grass and usually grows without the need for fertilizers or irrigation. After being harvested, it grows new shoots that are ready for harvesting after 4-6 years. At IKEA we use bamboo for items like furniture, bathroom decor, baskets and lamps – and we are constantly exploring more areas of use for this versatile material.
“Design is not always about inventing something new, but about placing things in a new context and or mixing traditional techniques with more modern approaches. Sometimes the best results actually come from using the best of old ideas. I hope that you can both see and feel that every handwoven lamp in the SINNERLIG series is special and that they bring a warm and natural feeling – wherever you choose to place them in your home.”
