Walnut Veneer & Steel Rivets

A series of lamp shades designed to be rapidly produced from laser cut strips of Walnut veneer with steel rivets.

This final lamp represents an attempt to address the the costs of shipping a large fragile lampshade. It builds off of the stacked effect of the previous designs with the addition of hidden wire loops, which allow the lamp to collapse for easy shipping with a minimal storage footprint. A drop-in plexiglass holder allows the corded socket to be quickly put in place with no undesired shadows cast due to its clear nature.
