Plika / 2013

The Plika Lights is made from a bunch of coloured fibres mounted in a white ceramic elements. The form evokes Rasta dreadlocks but the name suggests an inspiration derived from old Polish customs and beliefs where Plica Polonica (Polish Plait) was one of the curiosities of the ancient Poland. According to the folk tales, a messy knot tangled up at the ceiling imprisons evil spirits. However, it suggests local customs as well. As with other Pani Jurek designs, the lighting fixture allows the user to interact with it. A Plika light can be easily braided, knotted and tangled to achieve varying effects.
