Project Description

MONSIEUR TRICOT, by TRIBU

Monsieur Tricot joins the Tribù design family with its collection of distinctive knitted outdoor  lighting. The hanging and standing lamps, designed by Belgian designer Ilia Eckardt, merge traditional techniques with high-performance materials and modern technology. Ilia Eckardt grew up immersed in the Belgian fashion scene, his mother Hilde Frunt working for Belgian fashion designers like Raf Simons, Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Walter Van Beirendonck. Fascinated by their world, Ilia worked on several knitting projects, experimenting with innovative knitting techniques and materials. The Monsieur Tricot lighting collection is the first knitted weatherproof lighting. The globe and drop lights give a warm glow and cast beautiful shadows. Different shapes, dimensions, knitting patterns and colours are the perfect compliment to Tribù’s furniture. Tribù’s R&D department has made the lamps ready for the modern technology era. Thanks to a user friendly app, the battery functioning standing lamps can easily be operated, grouping lamps and adding timer functions.
