From the current series of designs by Ariel Zuckerman, we present pieces from his “Folded” Collection of lighting structures.
As graduate of the world renowned Shenkar Institute of Design in Israel, Zuckerman explores physical tension applied to two-dimensional wood sheets, to formulate these unique designs.**click image for full gallery and article**
The development process at Ariel-Design studio includes, hand-crafted movements of paper folding techniques like stretching, twisting and folding, being applied to the wooden works of art creating a more natural inspired lamp. Born of these skilled techniques and material relations, is a unique illuminant with the emphasis on texture and dimension, offering warm geometric radiance to any contemporary styled space.
All lamp styles and shapes vary from table, bedside, hanging pendant, to standing. The ‘triple w chandelier’ in last photo, invites a multiple choice, inviting you to create your own personal lighting expression. Using an American walnut veneer coated with acrylic, with optional finishes of oak veneer or white polypropylene, the full lighting series is available for viewing and purchase on line.
