During the process of wood decay by fungi, colour shades, decorative patterns and an increased light transparency occurs, a hidden beauty of wood decay
The Pendant Lights are made of wood that has been biodegraded by fungi in nature. This process of degradation can result in beautiful effects in the material; Pigmentation, bleaching and zone line formation for example. In today’s standardized wood industry defects and deviations are not allowed, this is causing the scarcity of this material. However, this wood does have very unique properties. White rot degradation leads to an increased light transmittance. A property of the material that in the first place was considered to be an imperfection is now applied in functional lighting. The lamps are partly made 1,5 millimetres thin so that light penetrates, which provides beautiful ambient lighting!
The Pendant Lights are an outcome of the Wood Decay by Fungi project and are being put into production. This product is handmade in the Netherlands and the wood originates from local dutch wood dealers. The light source is an energy saving LED bulb.
This project was nominated and exhibited for the 'New Material Award 2014'.
