"The idea for the lights come thinking about wood as a metaphor of the human body," the designer said John Procario. "The wood is easy to bend to a certain point and then break. Just like a muscle or bone, wood has its breaking point. "
Wood lamps with a very curved shape
The designer has the technique of steam bending used to bend the wood. It is a method are provided in a steam chamber with thin strips of wood, so that the fibers are relaxed and flexible. Procario is then manipulated, and laminated together to form a rigid section strips.
"I use white oak or ash, because the fibers of very solid wood joint natural glue, which makes it very flexible," said Procario. The light is from a band of flexible LED as inserted and fixed with an adhesive. Plexiglass was adapted on the LED strip to the intensity of the scattered light.
