The Fisherman by TAF is a woven-rope light designed to look like the glass buoys used by fishermen around the world. The lamp has a geometric pattern and is lit by a polypropylene light.

The Fisherman Lamp was created for Swedish brand Zero and was handmade in the coastal Swedish city of Hönö. The lamp has a minimalist look and feel that hides its high-quality creation process. These lamps are a great way of shouting out to Scandinavia's old-school fishing industry without refashioning older items and calling them "retro." Celebrating history through design is becoming increasingly popular as designers create modern items with an old-world feel.
