Israeli designer Haim Evgi has created versions of Anglepoise lamps in solid oak using traditional carpentry techniques.

The direction of light from Haim Evgi's TZAP lamps can be altered by moving the joints between the wooden elements, which are fastened with decorative coloured bolts and wingnuts.

"The arms are interconnected using Tzap, a technique carpenters use for hidden attachments in their works," said the designer, explaining where the title of the collection came from.

The lamps come in three designs, with the number of arms varying from model to model.

The four wooden sections that make up the stem of the Felix lamp get shorter towards the head, while all the zigzagging elements in the Flexi design are the same size.

The smaller Nuny desk light has just two joints. All of the lamps balance on circular bases.

A fabric power cord runs up inside the stem and hops out over the joints, allowing them to be adjusted unimpeded.

The head of each lamp is made from powder-coated aluminium, and all three are a slightly different shape.

    It’s clear how this isn’t a version of an Anglepoise right?

    Fastening with wing-nuts is not Anglepoise. Anglepoise is spring balanced without any locking mechanisms.
