This project is based on spiny creatures. Therefore, my attitude to the light fixtures was inspired and shaped by the ways in which living creatures operate, with their unique characteristics and nature. The human spine is rife with nerves, which ‘wire’ the spine. This unique structure makes the spine a central ’power line’ of the body, which is connected to the chief power source: the brain.
Stimulated by this visual notion, I chose to leave the power cables externally visible while the head of the creature stands out and functions as the main power core, much like the brain. The lamp's head was made using a lathe.
In the process of working on the design, I discovered that rays of light can pass through the thinner area of the Pine wood. A similar phenomenon occurs in the human skin.
