Even though the Log Light looks almost nothing like your archetypal table lamp, you might have been able to discern its function at first glance. The piece does not comprise a familiar lampshade nor a standard base, but the combination of the two elements in this design become clues about its purpose.

The imaginative Elisa Honkanen created a great contrast between the precise geometry of the metal ring and the rough and uneven textures of the tree trunk cutting. Industrial and natural styles are married in an unlikely composition that emphasizes the beauty that the powder-coated aluminum material and the raw birch wood possess. The contemporary creation maintains a crisp and minimalist look with the Log Light even concealing an LED stripe that is its source of illumination.
