Now I want you to focus only on the Lamp because I fell in love with it immediately the first time I saw it...  though, furniture and other accessories are also interesting, but we will come to that later!!!




here it is...
tada!!! isn't cute???



grabbed photo from here
Made of buri (palm leaf spines), tied on a wire frame with abaca.
Lamp diffuser is made of handmade paper laminated mylar.

Of course it's by none other than Kenneth Cobonpue.   With regards to working with natural materials for furniture and other accessory... Kenneth is one of the most creative people I've ever met in my professional life and he's very kind too!

Here's another version...
Just the two of so many faces of modern design using natural fibers and materials from the Philippines!

    thanks for the comment Catalin, as for my profile pic, that was a sail along the island... it's fun, was set against the backdrop of hotels and beaches...architecture is best viewed from afar most of the time=)

    I love it! I'm afraid I don't have a room in my house big enough to hold it!

    It's wonderful! I love the texture -- it's so unusual.
