With a limited stock of wood in hand during the lockdown, I decided to construct a floor lamp using just two lengths of wood, one 7 and the other 4 feet long. I wanted to create a form that would look light and graceful, without compromising on balance, stability and strength. The design that emerged required some tricky angled joinery.
The lamp is hand sanded and protected with an eco-friendly wood finish. The pleated fabric shade casts a soft light that is adequate to read by, which makes Ray perfect for a cozy reading nook.
