When we developed the KNIXHULT lamp series, we let parts of the bamboo plant, that otherwise would be discarded, become part of the expression ― meaning we harness each plant more than twice as much.
Gives a soft glowing light, that gives your home a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Each lamp is unique since it is made of bamboo with natural color variations and is hand-woven by skilled craftspeople.

Bamboo is stronger and more flexible than most wood, as it has longer fibers. It can grow up to three feet per day and produces twice as much oxygen compared to other wood species. The bamboo that IKEA uses is ready for harvest after 4-6 years. Bamboo is a grass, not a tree, and does not need replanting. It not only grows like grass, but spreads like grass.
Strong, flexible and one of the world's fastest growing plants – bamboo has many uses that make it an excellent renewable material. It’s a type of grass and usually grows without the need for fertilizers or irrigation. After being harvested, it grows new shoots that are ready for harvesting after 4-6 years. At IKEA, we use bamboo for items like furniture, bathroom decor, baskets and lamps – and we are constantly exploring more areas of use for this versatile material.
The KNIXHULT lamp series is a small but important step towards making all of our products 100% circular by 2030. To better understand what it means for a bamboo lamp, we traveled to Vietnam and studied the entire process from growing to weaving. There we discovered that bamboo parts with slightly darker color tones are often discarded. In KNIXHULT, these parts instead enhance the expression and this means that we use over double the materials from each plant.
"The idea with KNIXHULT was to make a lamp with a minimal environmental footprint. That’s why we chose bamboo – a carbon-positive material which removes more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it adds. At the factory, we discovered that bamboo with darker color tones was discarded, so we made a pattern that allows for greater variation. I'm glad we've used a carbon-positive material, harnessed more raw material and made a natural-looking lamp that lasts a long time."
