A nature inspired lamp

The Plateau lamp diffuses light through each layer of wood and acrylic creating a warm and ambient lamp that the user can personalize by simply shifting the wooden pieces to any configuration.



As the wind and sand changes the shape of plateaus over time, I wanted to mimic this action by making this lamp different layers that can be moved and changed by shifting each layer around to create a sculptural lamp. 


Final Product

The lamp is made up of 46 layers of laser cut wood and is spaced out using clear acrylic circles in between each layer. All of these pieces are can move individually from each other because there is an inner tube that contains the light source and also acts as the joint that allows all the pieces to spin.
