Handmade wood veneer pendant lamp
Few designers know LZF and can interpret our wood veneers the way the Irishman Ray Power does. Ray has been collaborating with us since 1998, designing the Link (2007) and the Air (2008) lamps, now two of the most popular LZF products, having achieved critical acclaim, with prizes such as the Red Dot and the Chicago Good Design Award.
Ray presents New Wave.
“…New wave is a lamp built around a simple structure with which I was experimenting with to find new ideas on how to enhance the expressiveness of the LZF wood veneer in combination with light. The result has allowed me to return to more organic and sinuous shapes, in contrast with the more geometric design of the Escape lamp of my previous project, for example”.
New Wave is composed of two parallel rectangular wood panels, one set inside the other, creating sinuous, natural curves which produce an effect of solidity and achieve a light, elegant structural balance. Moreover, the inside/outside contrast is enhanced by the different colours of the inner/outer veneers, thus adding a new range of nuances and possibilities to the LZF catalogue.
