This lamp was a project to experiment with mixing materials. I have used stacked plywood as a medium for massing models before, which created a very interesting effect that I wanted to work with again. To avoid having the striped pattern stop at the top of the lamp, a piece of stainless steel was pressure fit into the block to create a boundary. The diffuser is a sandblasted bottle and the light source is a disassembled LED spotlight. My favorite part about making this piece was creating the rounded edge where the steel meets the wood.
