We blogged about Toronto’s urban forests in a previous post about working with the city’s Urban Utilization initiative. One of the projects that we sourced the reclaimed wood for is “Branch Lamp”, a DIY lamp kit, designed by our friends at LGA Architectural Partners, and laser cut at Hot Pop Factory.
In the words of the designers:
“Each of the lamp’s unique fins are created by digitally carving away at a tree branch before they are perforated with offset, staggered openings. The light passing through these openings evoke the delicate, filtering effect of the tree’s canopy and foliage.”
Wood is a versatile and economical material to work with, when laser cut, it can be transformed into signage, decor, stationary, jewelry and very unique gifts. Find out more about the materials we stock and how to laser cut it on our laser services page. Need more inspiration for wooden projects? Check out the Hot Pop Factory Instagram feed!
