Nic Parnell

London-based designer Nic Parnell explores methods of finding new value in wood by altering its aesthetic and surface. Using only reclaimed and found wood, Nic’s pieces work against traditional geometry and structure to redefine a new character that harmonizes with nature. I love the bright, exciting colors – he covers each branch with nylon flock. I didn’t think I’d see branch lamps that did something new and exciting, but me likey.
