New year new lights

With the new year comes a flood of new inspiration. At willowlamp, we are always working on new ideas with the goal of expanding our repertoire and continuing to innovate. It’s in this spirit that we’re excited to announce a new 2020 collection launching soon.

Our new lighting range will comprise not only three new additions to our flagship chandelier range – the showpieces of our brand – but also an entirely new line (and something of a departure for the brand) in the form of wall lights. This new direction aims to offer something more versatile for homeowners and design lovers without the space for a big statement piece but who also want to own collectable South African design and celebrate it in their homes.

‘This is a complete first for willowlamp and a way of rounding off our range,’ says Creative Director and founder Adam Hoets on the new pieces. The 20 new lights will span wall-sconce and wall-lantern variants on existing families – from complex designs like the Protea and Flower of Life to the simpler ranges under the willowlamp banner.

Keep an eye out on our social media as we announce the unveiling of these exciting new additions to our family.  willowlamp will host an official launch for the new collection at their warehouse in March 2020.

Willowlamp is incredibly excited to announce a new design custom created for proudly South African, and globally renowned brand Nando’s. Known for its dedication to supporting the South African creative industry through its design programme, Nando’s uses local designers in its establishments around the world to create dynamic dining environments.

Willowlamp is proudly introducing a brand-new pendant light, created exclusively for Nando’s, which will be available for purchase through the Nando’s portal (a channel for local and international industry members to buy local design pieces from the Nando’s archive).

The Audrey 2 – which comes in two colourways, namely red, white and black, and blue, green, and purple – marks a departure for the brand in terms of direction. Inspired by the cult classic movie ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ (hence the name), the piece is quirky and offbeat, in contrast to willowlamp’s classic luxury aesthetic. The laser-cut metal frames are powder coated mild steel rather than brushed stainless steel and the design uses very little chain, which also makes the piece more affordable than its signature ranges.

Fun, colourful and perfectly in keeping with the Nando’s design brand, the piece will make a powerful addition to restaurants worldwide.
