The pieces on the Spindent Light don't use any screws or adhesives, instead relying on aligned component parts that slot into each other and are kept together by gravity and their own weight.
The light's soft triangular shape features two pieces of anodised aluminium, separated by a thin strip of timber to create a minimal shade for either the home or office. A black fabric electrical cord completes the monochrome look.
"I was originally inspired by the aluminium spinning process and its capabilities," said Australian designer Nick Sadowsky. "I looked at how I could make something both visually engaging and sustainable."
The polished sheen of the metal is interrupted by the warm tones of the wood and its rough grain.
"I had a low-impact material and finishing process," said Sadowsky. "It was then a matter of developing the form and I liked the idea of combining another material I really like, timber."
The wood element connects the aluminium together, creating a small lip between the two pieces.
"Its qualities are warm and organic and could provide an interesting detail in the form and become part of the assembly, as I was trying to avoid any adhesives or screws," explained Sadowsky.
The Spindent Lights are available in either black or silver from Sadowsky's website.
