The primary purpose of a light fixture might be to improve the look of everything else in the room, but the Cabos Adujados Lamp certainly demands attention for itself. The notion of "lightness" was cast off by designer Silvina Descole in favor of a heavy piece that's knotted with character.

For an authentic nautical aesthetic, the one-of-a-kind pendant lamps have been made of coiled rope that's been reclaimed from the La Boca shipyard in Buenos Aires. Each bundle of thick entwined cotton material covers a single lightbulb, illuminating the pale cord and emitting diffuse rays.

To further explore this maritime theme, the Cabos Adujados Lamp is strung up with an anchor and suspended by a pulley system of wrought iron and wood. The lights' heights can be adjusted with more ease than a ship's mainsail.
