Curro Claret's shoelace lamp collection is developed by Metalarte and boasts a unique design concept that will appeal to fans of bright colors. When enhancing a minimalist space, vibrant art pieces or textural decor accents are key and add visual interest to one's home.

Working with an unconventional material, Curro Claret transforms colorful shoelaces into a textural medium for his collection lamps and chandeliers. Made up of suspended chandeliers and smaller table lamps, this lighting range marries sleek and minimalist forms with a hint of whimsy courtesy of its shoelace constructions.

To create the collection, Curro Claret worked with "disadvantaged people and aimed to give those less fortunate an opportunity to feel valid and creatively active." His powerful project offers work to poverty-ridden communities and is sustainable due to its use of repurposed and non-traditional materials.
