Stringa Lamp by Sebastiano Tonelli

Stringa is a simple yet warm lamp by Sebastiano Tonelli. Tonelli created the lamp from a thin layer of birch wood, keeping waste to a minimum. Easily assembled, it has clean lines and transforms what was once a two-dimensional sheet into a three-dimensional one.


Stringa consists of a play between folds, a node, and one simple string. To adjust the intensity of the light, all you need to do is loosen or tighten the knot in the back.
