LED bamboo lamp
for a smaller lighting system, dah-yue shi designed the bamboo tube LED lamp. the simple cylindrical form makes it easier for manufacturers to produce, as well as lessens the amount of material consumption. a thin bamboo veneer covers specifically placed perforations, giving the LED bulb inside a warmer glow. the tubing itself is made from rolled bamboo sheets, making the structure crack-proof. a magnetic base allows the lamps to be attached to any surface including walls and ceilings, appearing to defy gravity. the force is strong enough that the lamp can be pushed, pulled, and otherwise readjusted along the surface.
