What is sedge (or seagrass)?
Sedge (or seagrass) grows naturally in South-East Asian coastal areas. For our products, we mainly use cultivated sedge from field areas that have previously been flooded by the sea, making them unsuitable for rice cultivation. But sedge grows well in salty soils and even helps cleanse them. After harvest, the plant is left to dry in the sun making it a hardwearing fibre ideal for weaving or braiding products with beautiful colour variations, like baskets and mats.
"MÅNALG is one of several wall lamps that I’ve designed for IKEA. This time my task was to find out how best to use natural fibres in a lamp to create a decorative shape and a beautiful, atmospheric light. Sedge is a fantastic natural material with a textile feel. I hope that the hand-braided structure with different layers and directions will spread both light and cosiness in your home."
