ANWAR by Stephen Burks is Akin to Weaved Baskets

At first glance, a person wouldn't be faulted for mistaking the pieces in ANWAR by Stephen Burks, an American industrial designer, for a modern take on weaved baskets. But instead of being made out of straw, these designs are made out of thin metal rods. And instead of being baskets, they are airy light fixtures.

Large and sculptural, ANWAR by Stephen Burks was created for Parachilna, a manufacturer based in Barcelona, Spain. With three different models, one that hangs from the ceiling, another for the floor and the last for tables, the lighting collection embraces "luxury by utilizing the best skilled craftsmen left in Europe and around the world," writes Design Milk. Each one uses 96 steel rods.
