Exclusive: uniquely designed beaded pendant lighting.
MASHT LUXURY LIGHTING BRAND
Founded in South Africa by Thabisa Mjo, Mash.T Design Studio is a luxury lighting brand that combines traditional African design with a modern aesthetic. Mash.T works with acclaimed artisans and custodians of the long-practiced Zulu craft to create whimsical light fixtures for contemporary spaces. The luxury lighting brand hand crafts beautiful and highly acclaimed fixtures such as the Tutu 2.0, installed as part of the permanent collection at Paris’ Musée des Arts Decoratifs in the Louvre.
Mash.T uses different materials, including wooden beads and woven yarn, to create unique compositions with eye-catching finishes. Color, which plays an important role in contemporary African design, is a consistent aspect of this luxury lighting brand. The size of the interior, whether small or large, is the perfect space to hang one of these special pendants that have graced the ceilings of kitchens, foyers, libraries and dining spaces, including restaurants.
Mash.T has been showcased globally in exhibitions including Milan Design Week 2019, 100% Design UK, and the Bonne Esperance Gallery in Paris. The company is part of a growing movement to preserve traditional African design techniques including Zulu basket weaving and beadwork. These time honored methods have been practiced in the southern region of Africa for generations.
