floris wubben: stripped branch lamp



‘stripped’ by floris wubben studio

dutch designer floris wubben has created a standing lamp that has been transformed from a raw tree branch with a minimum
number of modifications. in keeping the natural form of the wood, ‘stripped’ is made out of one section, which is split into
three parts beneath. as a result, the legs of the standing lamp are made, where the bark is almost entirely peeled from the branch
with a rotating movement forming into a lamp-shade. by maintaining the integrity of the structure, each part of the
section obtains a new function without losing its original unique appearance.
