Dutch designers Anke Boelens and Renier Winkelaar from VORMSTUDIO have designed the Tree of Light, an impressive 2-meter high floor lamp.
According to the two designers, ” the design of this 2-meter high object is based on the natural shapes of a tree and the exciting shadows coming through when the sun is shining.
According to the designer, “Natura comes from the natural relation between cork and glass. The combination of these two materials give the collection an innovative character in addition of being sustainable.
An extensive collection of lights and vases with warm and friendly shapes in contrast with the mix of materials and textures.”
Clamp is a unique leather upholstered pendant lamp from DZ Studio that was first presented during summer 2010 as a prototype and is now available for sale.

It was hard to define the right size of every rhomb and find the quality of leather that could fit the radius of the hemispheric surface.
