Dutch designerÂ 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 itâ€™s ultra lightweight.
Materials :Â Balsa wood,Â Oracover,Â Ceramic light fitting,Â Textile electric cord /Â Technique :Â Model Glider Planes /Â Diameter 60cm -Â HeightÂ Â 80cm
