extension / Lighting


Extension light contrasts dark, smoked bamboo with polished stainless steel and LED technology to highlight the beauty of contrast. Bamboo is often used in traditional craftsmanship. Generally, it is curved along its veins. Extension incorporates more complex curves achieved via a different technique. This, along with the combination of bamboo with modern materials, creates new meanings for a traditional material. The curvature of the bamboo is achieved by splitting the stem into flexible strips. This is not only a light but also a piece of craft. Bamboo’s physical characteristic of rigidity is used, as well as overcome, to create the form.
