The bamboo pendant lamp is our newest item. It is intended for indoor use, for suspension from the ceiling. Any modern light bulb is fine, we recommend a 5 watt warm-white LED bulb.

For many areas a black bulb fixture and cable will be fine, in brighter or more pastel themed spaces the lamp also looks good with a white bulb fixture and white suspension cable.

Design background

The bamboo lamp's design is based on a Thai traditional field fishing tool, used to catch fish in flooded rice fields. The farmer wades the flooded rice field to spot fish, and with swift action traps a fish underneath the bamboo trap. The trap is also used to catch frogs. The tool remains in wide use today. Our lamp design closely follows the original fishing tool's design, with modifications to allow its use as a ceiling lamp. Our version of the bamboo lamp is quite unique in the lamp, light and lighting world.

The bamboo ceiling lamp uses artisan skills very similar to our bamboo umbrellas and bamboo hand fans. They are made by the same craftspeople.

Semantics/terms

And we thought we are making a bamboo lamp. Alas, our lamp must actually be named in the category of bamboo pendant lamps, which again is also described as a bamboo pendant light, or ceiling pendant lighting. To complicate it further, other terminology refers to it as a ceiling suspension lamp, light or lighting, while thankfully the eco-friendly bamboo construction suffices with a single word.
