It may only be the name of the Froglamp that will have you looking to analyze the specific form that this illuminator takes; many people would be content enough to marvel at the curves and the creative abstraction of the piece.

With this strikingly sculptural pendant lamp, Stephan Siepermann is demonstrating the incredible possibilities of working with flexible bamboo veneer as a medium in design. Strips of the woody grass have been arranged together closely to as a wrap, enabling really tight curvatures, arcs and loopy shapes that create shadowy pleats. In this case, the Froglamp lampshade might take the loose outline of an amphibian, but it just as well emit a warm glow in the form of any other animal, object or geometry.
