Cocoon Lamp

bamboo plywood / wool yarn
varying dimensions:
small 8” h x 22” diameter
large 16” h x 31” diameter

The structure of this unusual pendant lamp is made from bamboo plywood and wrapped with 100% wool yarn which functions as a sculptural lampshade. The yarn also holds the structure together through tension rather than with nasty adhesives. The component bamboo plywood pieces slot together and are lasercut from a pattern of concentric circles, minimizing material waste from the manufacturing process. It ships flat to be assembled on site and is handmade in San Francisco.
