The folded wood lamp is an exploration of the possibility that can offer a thin layer of wood cut and engraved with laser cutter. The result is aware of the fabrication process, reducing time and waste of production, meanwhile playing with the translucent materiality of so thin wood element. Read Less

Material Test & Laser cutter calibration
The main purpose of our project was to find out how to work with material, what are its features. Our technology was folding, and material – wood. So we wanted to prove, that we could really fold it. Work with a material in its extreme points.
After we found the technique, we started creating the lamp, thinking about main purposes: avoidance of the direct light; thoughts about the rhythm; saving materials; using of one-way fold to save time of cutting process; creation of the form from one piece – without the introduction of any other materials (like glue) in between.
Only 0.4% of the material is wasted in the final design
 
Research envisioned by Alexandre Dubor, Anna Kulik and Theodoros Grousopoulos,
at the Institure of Advanced Architecture of Catalunya & Fab Lab Barcelona,
guided by Edouard Cabay as main tutor.
