German designer Elisa Strozyk‘s Miss Maple lamp is made out of hundreds of wooden triangles that she has transformed into a flexible textile. Normally one thinks of wood as simply a hard material but she has created a material that she calls Wooden Textiles that are “half wood-half textile.” Even though this piece is made essentially from wood, it still remains delicate and sculptural. The spaces between the triangles emit a warm glow from the light inside. The shade is flexible giving you the option of shaping it three-dimensionally however you like it best.
You might remember The Accordion Cabinet that we featured recently by Strozyk and artist Sebastian Neeb.
