ECOLOTEK is a durable, fully compostable material composed of natural hemp-fibers, minerals and binder. Developed by J.P.Meulendijks after a year of sampling, testing and more sampling, is now used in his shadow playing chandelier "BIRD IN HAND"
The lamp is based on, and tribute to the universal art of hand shadows; making shadows on the wall using your hands to create birds, rabbits,and other figures. Playing with light and hand shadows is a centuries old past time long before electric light was invented. "BIRD IN HAND" plays with this concept: All of the hands are positioned to look like a flock of birds, flying out in circles. The shadows cast on the wall looks like birds. This results in a very expressive, dynamic and striking looking lamp , with layers of humor and poetry hidden in the design. www.planktonstation.nl
