Lighting Made From Layered Felt

Feltology is a collection of lighting that takes a look at felt as a material and aims to showcase its wonderful qualities. Designed by Lorenzo Polo, the pieces are handcrafted from layers of felt that are joined with resin, which acts as glue and a hardening agent, making it easy to mold, cut and sculpt. When parts of the layered felt are cut away, bands of color from the inside layers are revealed.

The technique that Polo honed can be used in a multitude of applications, the lamps being just one of the ways it can be explored.
