The Plika Light by Pani Jurek is Inspired by Polish Folk Tales

The Plika Light not only looks good, it wards off evil as well. At least, if Polish folk tales are to believed. Inspired by a common local custom, the Plika Light takes on the form of a bundled knot that hangs from the ceiling, a symbol that is meant to hold evil spirits at bay. Made up of multicolored woven cords, the pendant lamp adds a vibrant and rustic touch to the home in the process.

Designed by Pani Jurek, a Bledow-based studio founded by artist and designer Magda Jurek, the Plika Light is somewhat versatile. A person can leave it knotted if he or she holds superstitious beliefs, or it can be braided or even left loose depending on visual desires.
