STRIATTI LAMPSPolylactic Acid, woven fiber covered cord
These lamps are printed in a translucent bio-plastic in one continuous extrusion, layer by layer. This process produces surfaces with striations similar to those seen on rock formations and tree bark. The layers are printed as thick as possible to emphasize these unique striations. We love this uniquely layered aesthetic, not only is it a signature of the process, but the lamp takes on an entirely new character when illuminated.
To bring a personal and human element to each of the designs, we decided to digitally sculpt each one by hand. As the process unfolded, a variety of form families emerged while the personality of each lamp remained unique. Some are symmetrical and appeared rooted in pure geometry. Some are gestural, feeling like captured motion. Others swirl and stretch into splendid spirals. Some are representational, reminding us of abstract avocados, handsome hats, and timeless toys.
