The Wilson Lamp

This lamp was commissioned by a friend of mine and inspired by the works of Alvar Aalto and 1940s stylistic sensibilities.

I designed this lamp digitally and cut 0% of it by hand. The wood pieces were milled out of 3/8″ Mahogany on the CMU Dfab Lab’s CNC Mill. The lampshade is a continuous piece of lasercut 1/64″ 2-ply Baltic Birch.  I soaked and shaped the birch plywood to mold it to the shape of the lamp.

There was no glue used in the construction of this lamp, all pieces are friction fit.
