Charred Lumber Illuminators

The 'Burning Ego' Ceiling Lamp Adds a Warm, Naturalistic Touch

— May 25, 2018 — Art & Design
The 'Burning Ego' ceiling lamp is an unorthodox approach to illuminators that will be favored by those who enjoy natural aesthetics to help them create an inviting living space. The lamp is crafted from a burnt piece of oak wood that has been integrated with dimmable LEDs and wire hangers to make it look like it's floating once installed. This makes it an ideal piece of decor for modern interiors where space is limited and requires airy fixtures to help make it feel larger than it is by drawing the eye upward into the room.

The 'Burning Ego' ceiling lamp is the design work of Jesse Sanderson of Wdstck in collaboration with landscape architect Wim Verzantvoort.
