BONBON SHADE / Story
Inspired by her drawings, Ana Kraš’ woven Bonbon Shades are produced using an original technique to create textured, one-of-a-kind pieces. Every shade is hand woven with nylon-wool yarn around a powder-coated steel frame, resulting in individual lampshades that vary slightly in their appearance and surface aesthetic. Bonbon is available either as a table/floor lamp or as a pendant, depending on the chosen cord set, but it stands on its own as a powerful decorative object even when the bulb is not switched on. Not supplied with a bulb.
Born in Belgrade, Serbia, in 1984, Ana Kraš studied furniture design and interior architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Belgrade. In 2013, she moved to New York, where she has continued pursuing various projects in the fields of object design, art, photography, and fashion. Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world, and featured in many international publications. For HAY, Ana has designed the Bonbon Lamp.
