The area is known for its sculptural rock formations in shades of terracotta, amber, and ochre.
“Walking these ancestral grounds evoke a feeling of mystery and reverence for the people who once inhabited the interleading Stadsaal Caves [Townhall Caves],” said Jan Ernst.
“Enormous voids and cracks shaped by the natural elements created a sanctuary for the first humans inhabiting these spaces.”
When designing the lamps, Ernst wanted to “evoke feelings of ‘the primal'” and celebrate life and birth through illuminance, which gave rise to the Womb Lamps’ organic, enfolding shapes and indirect light.
The lamps are said to emit a soft glow, reminiscent of a campfire. They are presented unglazed but can be glazed on request.
