The first time I saw these lamps were at the Cove store in Canggu. I immediately fell in love with them. The shapes were versatile and simply a great size. The color 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 are 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 color 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 colors and shapes.
