Ricasso Barrel Table Lamp

Aimee Betts
The Ricasso Barrel Table Lamp is a cylindrical form with a hand braided surface, made by mixed-media textile designer, Aimee Betts. Shade not included.

Aimee has used intricate braiding to compose a tightly woven structure using cow suede, kangaroo and waxed cotton cords, creating a rich texture that becomes animated under the light. Contrasting with the timber below, this brocade work will draw the eye and create a focal point in any interior.

International wiring is available, please enquire for further details. Shade not included.

For this lamp, the central braided design consists of multiple leather strands, which are hand-woven around a tubular base, a process described as ‘off-loom’ weaving. The woven structure naturally takes on a gentle twist as it pirouettes around the core.
