The U34 lamp is our third design developed under our modern lighting concept, this time exploring the spherical volume of an icosahedral structure. The repetition of equilateral triangles of identical dimensions enables an easier production and assembly. As with the rest of our U lamps, the U34's materials and looks take heavily from urban architecture, in this case a more pronounced nod towards industrial metallic structures.
As a woodworker and a digital fabricator, I was excited to combine my passion for Japanese wood joinery with my love for glass. These Japanese wooden joints (the Nejire-kumi-tsguite, the Kawai-tsuguite, and the Shihou-hozo-tsguite) were 3D printed and then cast in glass. The physical glass piece is a functioning, mobile joint.

'Tipsy' is a contemporary spin (no pun intended) on the standard whiskey glass that makes it hard to take your eyes off your drink. It can only rest at a seemingly precarious angle, and it engages its user to try and tip it and watch it wobble.
This collection, consisting of five lights, was inspired by the « Eagle » lunar module which took the first men to the Moon in 1969. Woodlabo has reworked and developed part of the spacecraft's fuselage and transformed it into an eagle. The Eagle collection plays on multiplying this form. Orbit, Landing, Moon and Lift Off are combinations of two or three modules and represent the mission's four stages.
So many of the things that we work on are shaped by the light that graces it. The relationship between light, medium, and artist is important—it affects the way we feel about the artifacts we handle. Shift is an exploration of light and color in space. Simply move the track-pad
