DECOHAUS is the theme of a collection inspired by Art Deco and Bauhaus, the two international design movements that overlapped during the 20’s. All of this collection’s designs have been locally reinterpreted using traditional UAE materials (such as camel leather) and the octagon, a shape often found in Middle Eastern and Islamic design and patterns. Each piece has been named after this key shape of the octagon. Hence:
OCTA LAMP I
A contrast with olden day lanterns that were easy and light to carry, these giant and heavy floor lamps are designed to stand still. With a one-direction illumination style, these lamps create a unique ambience in a space where they look like flames reflected in the polished marble surfaces, creating a 3 dimensional effect. The larger size lamp can work as a space divider when in multiples.
