Dutch designer Daniel Hulsbergen has sent me images of his latest project : Featherlight (Vederlicht), a super-lightweight lamp inspired by model glider planes.
Vederlicht (Featherlight) is a fascination that I had when I was a small child, the fascination of model glider plane. Back then these planes cost too much for me to buy and I only could look at them in the shop. The small kid in me is still there so I took the technique and material for making a glider and used it to design lighting. The material used in this design is Balsawood and Oracover which is used to cover the wings of a glider and gives the lamp altogether it’s ultra lightweight.
Materials : Balsa wood, Oracover, Ceramic light fitting, Textile electric cord / Technique : Model Glider Planes / Diameter 60cm – Height 80cm
