A magical light in flight – Portable lamps made from natural fibres.

The Firefly lamps from Let’s Pause capture colour, design and movement. Inspired by the beauty of the eponymous insects that float through the air during August nights sparking our imagination and suggesting creative lighting compositions for displaying on walls, ceilings, porches and gardens. And if you’re wondering about the material, they’re made by hand from natural fibres, of course.

At Let’s Pause we never know where our next inspiration is coming from. Sometimes it comes from a thought that springs to mind, for no explicable reason, that suggests an image that we go on to create.

The memory of a walk through a market in Ibiza where carrier bags made from raffia are on sale and an unexpected firefly floats past in the middle of the evening inspiring an image of a hanging lamp. Then it’s down to work, by hand, to come up with a complete collection of portable lamps named after the Firefly.

Singular imaginative designs

The Firefly lamps resemble a raffia style bag with an inner light. They take the shape of a lightweight fique backpack, that’s closed using a string pull at the top end and holds an intriguing light source inside, that can be recharged via USB and that can be set to a choice of three different intensities.

The fique thread that adds an elegant rustic quality is woven by hand on a loom, by our skilled weavers who are expert at making magic, knot by knot.

The freedom of movement

The Firefly lamps mean freedom of movement and not just because they don’t have any cable attached: they have two handles that allow them to be attached like a backpack that’d you’d wear going out for an evening stroll through a forest or the open countryside.

Changing compositions

Their easy portability allows us to decorate outdoor spaces in charming ways: they can be suspended from tree branches, on walls or from shrubs, from terrace chairs or the roofs of garden pergolas, creating beautiful eye-catching compositions that can be adapted when the occasion requires.

They are also perfect for decorating indoor rooms, like an entrance hall sconce lamp placed beside summer scarves and hats for example.

YellowBlueStrawberryFuchsiaGreyNaturalGreen… choose by colour

The cord made from fique fibres for the Firefly lamps feature different dyes to colour the fabric for the various models. All are slightly distressed, ombré style, to help evoke the tones of the insects’ colouring.

The colour range of the collection is also an homage to the fique plant that grows wild and that adds beautiful colourful flourishes to the landscapes where its’s found.
