willowlamp illuminates its new sconces ahead of the Cape Town Design Trail and in conjunction with its biannual studio sale

Branching out from its signature chandeliers, willowlamp has introduced an exciting range of wall-mounted designs. These stand-alone sconces will be on show as part of the inaugural Cape Town Design Trail presented by Decorex, which runs from 1-30 June 2021, with a preview evening taking place at the willowlamp premises on Thursday 27 May 2021.

For the entire month of June, willowlamp will throw open the doors of its Salt River studio and factory to both interior design professionals and members of the public alike. The company’s Creative Director and founder Adam Hoets will design and mount a display of pieces while his team continues to work on commissions for local and international projects.

This provides a unique opportunity for you to see how and where these iconic lights are made – and perhaps acquire one for yourself! Alongside the sconces, selected samples will also be available for purchase at reduced rates. While the samples have been gently used, they are still in prime showroom condition. Also on show, are three new minimalist pendant designs that are sleek and streamlined.

The willowlamp sconces are a welcome and versatile addition to the company’s ever-expanding collection of artful ceiling-mounted fittings. To date, willowlamp has been known primarily for its hanging lights – dramatic suspended creations that form the centrepiece of a space. The wall-mounted lamps facilitate a new design dynamic between directional lighting, artworks and objet d’art, allowing for more exciting décor possibilities.

Visitors can expect to see all-new stand-alone sconce designs such as the Half Pipe, Quarter Pipe and the Langarm. There is also a selection of other sconces that directly reference the existing willowlamp classics, allowing these pendants to be complemented by matching wall-fittings.

The full list of sconces that will be in show, as well as the sample sale pieces, is published on willowlamp’s website. The exhibition is open Monday to Friday, from 10h00 to 15h00, and can be found at 6 Spencer Square on Spencer Road in Salt River, Cape Town.

In addition to the month-long exhibition, willowlamp is also hosting a special preview of the show. Here, guests will have the opportunity to meet willowlamp’s Creative Director in person and take advantage of the first opportunity to purchase lights on display, ahead of the public opening. The preview evening will also take place at the willowlamp premises in Salt River, and will be hosted on Thursday 27 May 2021, from 18h00-20h00. To RSVP for the preview, please email or call +27 (0)21 447 8529.
