Handmade wooden floor lamp

design by
Elephant is the other Funny Farm animal we chose to convert into a light sculpture. Like all elephants, it has big ears, a trunk, even its own legs, and a body standing more than a meter and a half tall.
To turn Isidro Ferrer’s vision into a large-scale lamp, LZF has again drawn on the experience of the craftsman Manolo Martin.
Just as he did with Fish, Manolo used the “vareta” technique to shape the three spheres which constitute the body and the head of Elephant. Its luminous heart, at the centre of the sculpture, is diffused through a natural wood veneer internal lining.

 - Handmade wooden floor lamp FISH LS - LZF Handmade wooden floor lamp Fish is modelled on one of the original pieces by Isidro Ferrer, a friendly fish with legs which has become one of the first large-scale light sculptures within the Funny Farm project. Developing the piece was a real challenge, both technically and from the point of view of the design.
The external structure of Fish, made from poplar and elm wood by Manolo Martin, was built using the traditional Valencian “vareta” technique, which consists of creating 3D structures through the use of wood strips treated with water. The inside holds 24 balls of light; hand blown glass spheres of various sizes handcrafted in Granada, placed at different heights inside the fixture. The carefully studied layout produces a captivating effect, as if a small universe of luminous orbs lived inside Fish.
What is the ideal habitat for Fish? Lobbies, relax areas, zoos and children’s hospitals are all spaces Fish and its Funny Farm friends could dwell in. Where do you imagine yours to be?
Fish could be where ever you imagine it to be.
