Reimagining traditional designs, Iskos-Berlin have created a striking piece of lighting with the Oval Made by Hand Knit-Wit Pendant Light. Inspired by Chinese paper lanterns, the duo have used modern materials to put a contemporary twist on the classic silhouette. A revolutionary 3D knitting technique gives the shade its iconic shape and texture. Available in a range of eye-catching colours and shapes, different pieces from the Knit-Wit collection can be combined to create beautiful arrangements.
Iskos–Berlin Design is a partnership of Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos. The company works within the fields of industrial, furniture and graphic design. Boris and Aleksej have been working together for several years before establishing their company Iskos–Berlin in 2010.
In 1987, Boris co-founded Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years. This long and fruitful cooperation has allowed them to develop a shared philosophy of design. In their own words: “We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting of semantics, morphology, materiality, technology of objects and many other elements. But the clearer your story is, the more likely people are to understand it. The more surprising you make your story, the more likely they are to remember it. And finally the more you make people smile, the more likely they are to love it!”
