The first time I saw these lamps was at Cove store in Canggu. I immediately felt in love with them. The shapes were versatile and simply a great size. The colour combinations were perfection. I knew they were special.
It doesn’t surprise me at all to have learned that the designer behind Kaba is a stylist from Italy. Of course!
KABA lamps are handcrafted lamps made of an iron frame and cotton yarn.
What does Kaba mean? These lamps were conceived in Bali and are a tribute to the village of Kaba-Kaba where time seems to have stopped.
The product and ideology of Kaba is aligned with the slow-movement. They are hand-woven individually – one by one. It’s a process that takes time – but it’s absolutely worth it. The making of each lamp is, as the designer describes, a sort of meditation. There is a delicacy in each of the lamps. You can see the love that went into making each one of them.
The shape of the frames and the colour combinations recall a vintage atmosphere & design, but at the same time are very current and on trend. And the beautiful thing is that each lamp is unique and can be ordered in many variations, playing with colours and shapes.
