In these works designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocón and the Bula’bula artists devised a system for joining traditional woven mat forms, resulting in large-scale collaborative works, to be presented as suspension lamps. Alongside, studies of the development process track the process of collaboration and the merging of traditional gathered, dyed and woven pandanus with PET plastic bottles.
