Knap Light by Annemarie O’Sullivan is part of the ‘Plant Explorations’ collection, facilitated by The New Craftsmen. Earlier this year, The New Craftsmen invited a select group of craftspeople to the Economic Botany Collections at Kew Gardens to examine and creatively respond to a myriad of objects and their narratives. Annemarie found inspiration in the elegance and efficiency of Japanese craftsmanship and has created a light that contrasts an ordered wooden framework against the dynamic wildness of around 8,000 cane knots. The word ‘Knap’ is an old English word which refers to the 'crest of a hill' - a nod to Annemarie's East Sussex surroundings and its landscape, which provides a constant source of inspiration. The Knap Light is a celebration of bundling and binding techniques and the repetition of knotting, while pushing the material into a dense mass to form a striking sculptural piece rich with layers of illumination. This light comes with an adjustable 3m drop of black tensile cable as standard, custom drops can be commissioned. It gives a warm white light through a parchment-coated diffuser and is dimmer- compatible.
