Duncan Meerding for Duncan Meerding SKU: crackedloglamp

The Cracked Log Lamps are made from salvaged logs which would otherwise have been burnt or destroyed.


Dimensions: approx 23cm x 18cm

Tasmaniandesigner, Duncan Meerding, is legally blind, and this vision of light emanating from the peripheries and the highly tactile nature of his work, reflect the alternative sensory world within which he designs.

These lamps embrace, rather than avoid the naturally occurring cracks in refuse logs.

By turning them into a vessel for light, we can bring the outside in, and be reminded of our intrinsic connection with nature.

The warm yellow light coming through each lamps unique light pattern highlights the fiery fate that the salvaged timber would have otherwise been exposed to. /p>

These lamps embrace the cracks often avoided in timber based designs - pushing the light through the things often associated with darkness. Before turning on the Cracked Log Lamp, often a person would think it is purely just a log of wood.

Please note: Because these are salvaged wood, no two log lamps are the same. Images shown depict various log lamps over time. Every log lamp is unique.

Specifications:

- Ready wired for Australian power point
- Inline switch
- Edison Screw styled fitting
- Recommended for use with 75w (equivalent) warm white compact energy saving globe

The Natural finish has been sanded on top whilst the sides remain raw. The top is coated with natural wax oil by Osmo, preserving the beauty and smoothness on the top of each log.

The Charred finish has undergone Shou Suugi Ban treatment. Shou Suugi Ban is achieved by burning each log with a controlled method. Then stabilising the external surface of the material with a mix of bees wax and linseed oil to increase the longevity of the item and reduce transmission of char onto surrounding items.

NOTE: The Cracked Log Lamp is for dry indoor use only.

Regular price $385.00

Duncan Meerding is a furniture and lighting designer based in Hobart, Tasmania. Working predominately in timber, he creates pieces for everyday living to remind us of natural beauty. Much of his work features curving lines and surfaces, inspired by organic forms found in nature.

Many of my designs reflect his interest in light and its dispersion, represented by simplistic forms and different lighting designs. Being legally blind, this vision of light emanating from the peripheries and the highly tactile nature of his work reflect the alternative sensory world within which he designs.

Combining traditional wood joinery techniques with modern technologies, Duncan aims to create pieces which are functional, as well as hold a simplistic aesthetic beauty. Creating furniture and lighting which stands the test of time is his aim, both in construction, but also in design.

Not wanting to ironically destroy the environment from where Duncan gets his inspiration from, he aims to use sustainably sourced timber for his designs. His work should not merely be seen as something that looks nice, it should remind us of our intrinsic connection with nature and the effect that we have upon it.
