Laser Cut Wooden Sheet Bends to Create an Integrated Lamp Shade
Lynx represents the research in the simplicity of form through the use of a few elements. A single panel of mdf wood, finished with a particular laser technique, and a single fixing element to maintain the shape. Few components to create an attractive, elegant and modern object.

With Lynx I tried to use a material such as mdf wood, in a new way, through the technique and the study of particular cutting shapes.The naturalness in the simplicity of the shape of the lamp is the key of this project, a simple curve that intersects itself and an interlocking joint as a joining element. The material becomes flexible and soft thanks to the laser cutting pattern, which in addition to making the material malleable, has the function of creating effects of light through the passage of the decorations created by the lasering process, effects and shadows all around. The external finish is given by a digital serigraphy printing, that give me the possibility to create particular effects not only of full colors but also of textures and graphic effects. The idea was born after creating two other projects through the use of laser cutting, but in a different material, in plexyglass. I wanted to do more design experiment with this technology but using other materials, I felt the need to start this new design from this type of wood, usually used for furniture components, such as in kitchens and tables, but now in a new way, it become a central element of this lamp, is the material that creates the shape and interacts with light and shadows. A very simple, geometric, clean line, seen from the front, is just a line. The light, positioned in the upper inner part, creates a homogeneous effect of light aided by the choice to keep the interior white.
