This hand built lamp takes the form of a vertical blade of light, and is inspired by the moving light scene from 2001: a space Odysee by Stanley Kubrick, where beams of multi coloured light move non-stop past the viewer- my aim was to create something which changes as you move around it, and has a strong visual presence even when switched off. It would be perfect for a modern, contemporary designed home or where a dramatic sculptural form is desired to make a statement.

  

This piece is made in my workshop near Castle Fraser, Inverurie, and consist of an oak-pine-oak lamination, which is recessed to contain an aluminium metal light strip, set flush with the surface of the wood. The lighting blade is in fact a very tall thin 'n'-shape, with lighting strips facing each other on the inside edge, and the oak base where they join is set into a solid block of concrete, giving a dramatic contrast to the smooth wood. The piece is made by first casting the concrete base, and then precision fitting the oak blade into a recess, adjusting each one to fit precisely. Both the oak and concrete are finished with linseed oil, and the material contrast gives a modern, crafted feel.

 

 

The lighting can be changed to over 20 colours, with effects such as flash and soft fade giving you a range of moods, and the brightness adjustable at the push of a button. Using it could not be simpler- a standard plug with built in transformer steps down the power to 12V D.C, meaning the lights are energy efficient, safe, low temperature, and extremely long lasting. There is no switch or button on the assembly, and everything can be adjusted by remote control allowing you to have complete control from the comfort of your sofa.
