Israeli designer Noam Bar Yohai has created a series of task lamps made of wooden components held together with elastic bands.
Called Light Movement, the lamps were made as part of Yohai's graduation project at The Holon Institute of Technology in Israel.
The six products consist of wood, elastic bands and heat-shrinking tubing, with metal components to weight them.
They do not need any glue or screws for assembly.
Here's some more information from Noam Bar Yohai:
This project experiments with hard and flexible materials while questioning the relation and borders between a model and a finished product.
A total of six Table lamps were created, all using l.e.d light and bulbs.
In each one, the woods flexibility is used to gain adjustability and structural change.
Silicon bands add reliability to the structure and at certain places act as a muscle which contracts the hard character of the wood.
Heat- shrink tubing used in electronics, was used in places where friction was needed and adding a touch of extra color thus expending its original use.
Throughout the design process exposed mechanisms and simplicity were used as guidelines.
No glue or screws are needed in the assembly of the lamps.
