FLOOR LAMP I - FLORESCENCE
It’s my first floor lamp and without a doubt, the most demanding one so far.
Head of the lamp is made of senegalese calabash. Its diameter is 29cm.
Height of whole lamp is 161cm.
The wooden base is made by Stanisław “Siacho” Smerecki from UniqueWoodDesign
It is wenge wood (Millettia laurentii) from central-west Africa (Congo, Cameroun).
Diameter of the base is 32cm.
The supporting stem is finished off with black jeweller waxed string.
95% of all holes in the lamp were first planned and place of each single hole marked.
The lower perforated part contains 111 circles. Depends on the diameter, each pattern is different.
All circles are made of exactly 5942 holes.
Going up is the part with nine carved circles around. The axis of symmetry of every next circle is rotated by 40 degrees. Analogously is with the rings in each big circle. Every inner ring of circles is rotated by 40 degrees from the outside one. Between big carved circles, on the top and the bottom, on the perforated part you can see the circles that are drilled according to the same principle.
It’s the first time when I could quite accurately estimate the number of all holes in the lamp and it is 16.000 holes +/- 200.
