By repeating a simple wood part a complex textural surface is developed. Taking cues from knitting with the addition and subtraction of columns, the assembly technique allows the maker to control the form. As opposed to most mass production the decisions of the maker are critical to the final outcome of the piece. Each piece is ultimately a one of a kind object.
The surface of the Squeeze Lamp remains elastic allowing the end user to control and change the form of the lamp. The shape can be expanded or contracted to alter the way light escapes. Thus the design remains a work in progress.
The assembly technique has been used to create objects at various scales from 24 inch table lights to 14 feet tall sculptures and ambitions for multi-story installations.
