Bamboos light / lamp

Bamboos light
Bamboos light

The lamp was designed for a passage, which should be durable, technically simple but not flickering. On the another hand we want it to be emotional and poetical.
The final concept looks like a conical bucket, which has three parts: a cast made from aluminum, a bamboos mesh and a ground disc. These parts can be installed together temporally or permanently. More over it is possible to furnish different mesh work. The bubble can be quickly replaced to change light.
An uncomplicated bonding with a single screw on each backside of two casting parts keeps the re-equip easy.
