rhizome by pedro mealha
rhizome by pedro mealha is an exercise in re-evaluating the role of the task lamp. through his design, mealha has explored mechanical movement, elastic tension and the potential of certain materials using CNC/laser technology. the project emerged from his interest in wooden dinosaur kits and the way in which the various components are pieced together to gain a three-dimensional shape from a flat wooden panel. made from two A3 aeroply boards, rhizome uses an LED ring as a source of light. the lamp was initially intended to be for self-assembly for DIY enthusiasts, however, the project has now evolved into a ready assembled product made from 3mm bamboo ply and is fully extendible and can rotate.
