Our nature has dual character, so does the light. Particle or wave, maybe both! This shade present willingness to achieve balance between very subtle and in the same time really tough and durable piece. With only 1 mm wall thickness it looks fragile like a sheet of veneer. In other hand it's surprisingly strong due to it's structural pattern which gave also production advantages like avoiding any support material and usage of less material as possible. This wooden filament is blend of PLA and PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoate) an biodegradable polymer produced by bacterial fermentation of sugar or lipids + 30% fine pinewood fibers. Amazing mixture of ingredients balances strength, elongation and transparency making it the ideal choice for light shades which appearance is fabulous and smell like a woodshop! We makes sure that the 3D printed details are very welcome in both our home and work environment and that they’re there to stay. For good.
We have become light dependents and without it we would have long, sad and in-officious nights, but we have forgotten that it is a resource that we must pay for and we even misspend. It is more than just a lamp; it is a different way to light up our consciousness. Straight from the printer parts look almost laser sintered with a matte finish. With a bit of sanding and polishing the copper particles start to shine and shimmer unlike any 3d printing filament you have seen before. The weight of the material is something special, about 3 times heavier than regular PLA/PHA
