The W & M Lamp by Maxim Maximov Expresses a Pair of Subsance Strengths

 - Feb 11, 2012
Different types of materials are put together all of the time with the intention of assembling a broad range of objects. However, they seldom showcase the unique qualities of each component like the W&M Lamp does. Made from the coupling of metal and wood, this elegant table light expresses more than a warm glow.

Maxim Maximov composed this contemporary piece using a weather-worn block of timber and a bent strip of powder-coated metal. Both have been shaped in ways that come naturally to the properties of their structures, with the former having been sawed and sanded and the latter rolled and flexed. The W&M Lamp embodies a poised partnership between two very different sorts of constituents.
