Product description

Gweilo is a new family of lighting that transforms the light source itself. Thin sheets of LED bulbs are carefully molded into a beautiful and dynamic sculpture. Each light is handsculpted by an artist in its hot plastic state, allowing for infinite possibility in the shape, size and detail of the finished object.


“We have been trying to create light that is light itself rather than a fixture or housing or clothing for standard bulbs. It was about getting as closeto the source as possible. We started looking at LED panels and wondered:Can light be a moving object? Why can’t light pool, drip or drape? Thermoforming is a technique we’ve been using in other mediums and we were excited see what it could do with light.” - Alex Josephson co-founder of PARTISANS


Gweilo lights are the first product of the architecture and design syndicate PARTISANS, conceptualized in early 2014.
