The “folded” series by Israeli designer Ariel Zuckerman deals with the physical tension applied on a two dimensional sheet. Using techniques such as folding, stretching and twisting, borrowed from the discipline of paper, and applying them to wooden sheets, led to a novel three dimensional appearance.
The material used to form the lighting is innovative. Veneer covered in an acrylic layer, resulting in a natural wooden appearance but also incorporating the flexible attributes of plastic. The sheets thinness allows the light to pass through it and accentuate the texture.
The “folded” series includes: table lamp, floor lamp, hanging from the wall and a chandelier. All can be found on the designer Etsy shop.
