Translucent Ash Wood Lamp

These amazing floor and pendant lamps are made of real ash wood! The designer Ieva Kaleja managed to preserve the rustic wood log detail on one side of the shade giving the lamp its dramatic look.

These translucent ash wood lamps, dubbed The Wise One, “generate an aura of visceral energy and vitality around them”.

They fit equally well into a rustic rural environment and in urban dwellings, bringing the touch of nature to modern decor. Completed by skillful craftsmen, each lamp is unique: “each log has been selected for its individuality, thus preserving the individual character of each tree.” The diffused light appears to delicately shine through the thin ash wood, as if it is the sunlight getting through your covered window at the sunrise.

What a captivating design … Visit Mammalampa for details.
