A round table mat caught my eyes while shopping in ikea. The idea of converting it to a hanging light immediately struck my head.
This mat was flexible enough to make it to any desired form. I wanted a irregular yet a simple form. so it finally took its shape as shown above. The form was held together using a gauge wire. you can try this with any netted flexible mat into your desired shape.
The light & shadows created by the net patterns are different every time they fall on the wall & ceiling. So this becomes an appropriate lighting while we watch TV !
