Supple textures meet bold hues in Sangmin Oh’s elegant Knitted Light series. Drawn to relationships between sculptural forms, textile techniques, and architectural elements, the Netherlands and Korea-based artist developed a collection of soft lamps designed to suspend from the ceiling or sit on chunky, rough-hewn pedestals.

Oh founded Osangmin Studio in 2021, which “focuses on observing trivial and small empty spaces” like the corners of rooms or nondescript alcoves that can be elevated with the addition of color, shape, and illumination. The Knitted Light series takes inspiration from the diversity of sea life and coral, evoking scaled tendrils or slim funnels. The fixtures often appear to float in the dark as they transform from standalone objects into glowing, functional installations.
