Heike Buchfelder studied architecture at Berlin University of the Arts and Oslo School of Architecture and Design. Since 2005, her Berlin-based studio pluma cubic has been synonymous with idiosyncratic light objects that capture the beauty of feathers in sculptural forms. The collection includes small, handmade series as well as unique pieces. Depending on the model, anywhere between 250 and 4,000 specially selected goose and rooster feathers are individually hand-laced into lampshades' cotton coverings – also designed by pluma cubic – in a slow, meditative process. The result is opulent light sculptures with a sensual presence. All pieces are made by hand in the Berlin area.
