Luminária Querência

The lamp Querencia meets the trend of appreciation for the local and it is inspired on gaucho handicraft. Its creation is based on the study of the gaucho popular culture, especially the technique of braided leather, characteristic of Rio Grande do Sul. The lamp Querencia also follows the trends of the lighting industry by allowing the user interfering in its configuration, once it has a docking and undocking structure. In this structure it can be applied different weaves through small hooks on the back, providing new effects and mood settings, besides helping the cleaning of the product.
