The Swirl Lamp Appears to Spin with Its Delicately Furling Fins

The delightful details of the Swirl Lamp come from the repetitious composition of several fins made from bend wood. Designer Igor Solovyov cuts the alder veneers into paddle-like forms and gently curves them, giving the finished product greater dimension when a dozen of them are bunched together.

There is a delightful delicacy to the appearance of the apparently twisting lamps. They are reminiscent of dancers' skirts as they pirouette across a stage. To enliven them further, Solovyov enhances the lovely curling petals with the application of green or pink paint on the insides. When you look straight at a Swirl Lamp, it will appear to be half bare wood and half tinted for a wonderful accent to these accenting pendant lamps.
