Fish Trap Lighting 

The Banjar indigenous community live in a small village nestled in the vast lush forests and rice fields of South Eastern Borneo. These fish traps (’Sarakap’) are hand woven by a dedicated father and son team.


The Fish Trap Lighting was born from the intention to honour the work and heritage of the artisan in Borneo. The circular light and the pendant float independently, accentuating the mysterious depths of life in the remote regions of Borneo. There is a playful symmetry between the fish traps' traditional function and as modern lighting, whereby the moon-like light is being caught inside the cage like a fish once was.
