A Tale of Trees and Beavers: Sustainable Lamp Design Inspired by Nature
We received photos about an original lamp design from Ligneous Lighting, inspired by trees that are damaged by beavers. We asked designer Robin Brown to share the story behind this project with us and here is what he replied:” I was born in New Forest, an area of southern England, a place where animals can go wherever they like. That’s why, as a child, I was surrounded by nature. Since I moved to London however, I miss this connection tremendously.
After my study at the RCA in London, I came up with the idea to start a company that makes designer lamps from natural and recycled materials. The purity of nature is something people will always get moved by, especially in hectic times. That’s why we want to bring nature back in the city by using these original materials. And hopefully we will make people revalue nature once again. Our designer lamp ‘Castor’ is inspired by trees that are damaged by beavers. It is made out of recycled wood, bark and juice bottles“. The lamp is 33.5 inches wide and has a diameter of 7.5 inches.
