Cracked Log Lamp

Designed by Tasmanian furniture designer Duncan Meerding, the Cracked Log Lamps are made from salvaged logs that would otherwise have been burnt. Meerding’s work is inspired by organic forms, exploring the ways in which light performs around objects. The Cracked Log Lamps celebrate the naturally occurring fissures in the wood, emitting light through the cracks and gaps and creating different patterns with shards of light.

Meerding is legally blind, with around 1-5 per cent vision concentrated around the periphery. The lamps mimic his vision – with light appearing in simplistic lines from the periphery. Unlike the sleek, uniform surfaces of many other lighting designs, the Cracked Log Lamp is tactile and irregular, embracing the texture and variation present in nature.

The Cracked Log Lamp was a top ten finalist in the Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award 2011.
