The Drawstring Lamp is a funky hanging light fixture that is made out of an unorthodox material. Using a fabric crafted by Svensson Markspelle, which was originally applied as a sun screen, the light trickles out in an alluring manner. Emitting more of a luminous glow than a strong light source, the Drawstring Lamp is perfect for rooms that require a romantic ambiance.

Nevertheless, the Drawstring Lamp does have a funky side by way of its vibrant hues and hanging drawstrings, hence its name. Designed by Merry-Go-Round, a studio born from the combined efforts of a group of producers and artisans called Returhuset and Gothenburg, Sweden-based design studio Design Stories. Working with industrial waste material produced by local companies, Merry-Go-Round creates other furniture pieces as quirky and fun as the Drawstring Lamp.
