We stir the pots with it – We test our food with it – We discipline with it – We sing with it.

Inherently part of African culture, the humble “paplepel” (wooden ladle). A floor lamp with European influence and a design inspired by Africa…the quite one in the corner shedding light on you book – the Paplepel floor lamp.

The weight of the steel base steadies the lamp while the lamp’s main structure is constructed from 5 pieces of solid wood which also holds the electric cable internally.

Cleaning instructions

Use a damp clean cloth to dust regularly. Do not use abrasive, silicon or oil-based cleaners. Blot spills immediately to avoid moisture, penetrating the wood.

Dust regularly and wipe with a soft, damp cloth. Dry off immediately to avoid marks. Do not use any harsh chemicals, abrasive powders, metallic scourers, silver or brass cleaners. If residue starts to leave marks apply wax polish regularly to shine. Frame is not rust proof. Clean more regularly at the coast, as sea salts build up and could cause corrosion.
