Lamp made from model glider materials by Studio Daniel for Odesi
Dutch designer Daniel Hulsbergen created this intricate lamp from materials similar to those he used as a child to make model gliders.
Daniel Hulsbergen of Studio Daniel designed the Satori Lamp for Dutch furniture design company Odesi. Hulsbergen used slender sticks of balsa wood to create the layered octagonal lamp.
"The materials used for building model gliders have some unique properties," he said. "They are extremely light and very strong for their weight."
The inner layer framing the light bulb is covered with a soft white canvas used for spanning model aircraft wings, which diffuses the light.
The outer layer forms a cage-like structure with a small section on each of the four sides also covered with fabric.
When light shines through the lamp, the frame creates shadow patterns on the ceiling and walls.
