The Orb Lamp
The Orb Lamp was inspired by mid century style wooden lamps. These lamps always had outrageous curves and pointy ends which we found to be quite bold. Eventually this concept evolved. Using a tripod as a base for stability with three gradual curves which are ethically pleasing, meet flush at the base of the centre mount. This series was manufactured both by hand and using a CNC milling machine.
The American Oak top was created by laminating four pieces of 150mm x 60mm lengths which were machined by hand on a lathe. The legs and centre mount were CNC milled out of recycled heart Rimu. A five watt LED was recessed within the Oak top. Only seven of these were produced for sale at the Kings College Art Exhibition in Auckland.
