Simply by folding, a thin sheet can be used to construct stable forms. This principle defines the shape and aesthetics of this pendant lamp. The Wooden Light is made from beech wood veneer and a film backing. The wood veneer is cut and egraved by laser. The film backing functions as a hinge, making it possible to fold the veneer whereas it would normally break.
The Wooden Light is assembled by hand in The Netherlands and has a white interior which creates 'neutral' light. This lamp has originally been designed in copper as the Copper Light, also available via Vij5. Another variation of this lamp is the Brass Light, made with a thin brass sheet.
