A combination of high-tech fibres and a braiding technique has made it possible to weave a onepiece lamp. The lampshade, its base and the connecting arch are woven in a single production line. The carbon fibre is used as an electrical conductor of electricity as well as a structural material. The light-emitting diodes strewn across the lampshade create the feeling of gazing into the night sky.
