Extremely organic, yet precisely charted spiral-based pattern of this exclusive table lamp was inspired by work of the great M.C.Escher.
The pattern of the lamp was inspired by the work of M.C.Escher, created in 1944.
The pattern was built on a spherical, spiral grid, creating two symmetrical, continuous forms being in perfect equilibrium. The whole gourd is carved, including the perforated openwork leaves (based upon Voronoi diagram), which create flowing and calming light patterns bringing a peace to every interior.
The texture of the dark contours was made with a very precise wood burner and it’s been the first lamp where this technique was applied.
It’s the biggest Calabarte table lamp so far – the height is 57cm. The head of „Escher’s Leaves” is made of gourd from Mali. Its bigger diameter is 27 cm.
The diameter of the base is 34 cm and it is finished with the black jewelry waxed cord. The openwork ending part is carved from wood. Its motif is closely related to the main pattern of the lamp.
