willowlamp team e5ca2c9f


The willowlamp team produces bespoke lighting from award-winning chandeliers to pendants and lamps.

As a recognised and award-winning lighting design company, our success story began with a simple idea: a patented notch system by willowlamp’s Founder and Creative Director, Adam Hoets.  This design method allows strands of metal ball chains to be notched into laser-cut stainless steel frames.

This, along with our bespoke tailoring service, enables us to create an infinite variety of unique lighting designs.  Our light designs are inspired by nature and the principles of sacred geometry.  Bespoke lighting by Adam Hoets celebrates the beauty surrounding us from flowers to enchanted forests, sea shells, rivers, storms, and galaxies.

Today, our award-winning, bespoke lighting designs bring life and light to large and small spaces across the globe. We work with renowned architects and interior designers across residential and hospitality projects to deliver decorative lighting. 

Our lamps are crafted using world-class lighting technology, master craftsmanship, and high-quality metal materials to create timeless yet functional works of art.  When you invest in a willowlamp, it is a true investment in style, creativity, and individual expression. 


Lighting designer, Adam Hoets, is the Founder and Creative Director of willowlamp.  Trained as an architect, Hoets’ designs create spaces that integrate harmoniously into their surroundings with sculptural forms.  Hoets lives and works on the slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town. 

We use world-class lighting technology and the highest-quality materials to create architectural luminaires inspired by the nature surrounding us. Each light is made to order and hand-assembled by master craftsmen.


The willowlamp notch design system was patented in 2007. Since then, we have built a reliable team of trading partners and specialist suppliers in the luxury lighting industry. 

Our professional in-house support team ensures that willowlamp is shipped with care to our clients all over the world. Our industrial partners deliver precision laser-cut, machined and finished components.

The artisans in our team are masters at creating lighting products and hand-assemble each willowlamp with meticulous attention. Each willowlamp is made precisely to order, guaranteeing the highest quality and a truly unique art piece. 


Luxury lighting by Adam Hoets fuses metal and light to create sculptural lamps as functional art. Unleash your creativity and consult with us to create your own bespoke lighting that showcases your individual style.

We have created custom lighting projects along with bespoke fixtures for hospitality, commercial and residential projects.
