Cracked Log Lamps | By Duncan Meerding
Tasmania-based furniture and lighting designer Duncan Meerding transforms cracked tree stumps into lamps. With these lamps, your home will get a warm and rustic charm.
All lamps are made with salvaged cracked wood that would otherwise be burnt. They can be used both as outdoor and indoor decor. Inside the cracks, there are yellow LED lights, perfect for giving your surrounding the warm and natural look. These lamps are a celebration of nature and environmentally friendly design.
Besides using it as a lamp, you can also use the tree stump as a stool or a coffee table. Dimensions of each lamp vary due to the nature of the material. You can place them on the ground, but also wire them to the ceiling.
The idea that the designer had with these cracked logs is that “By turning them into a vessel for light, we can bring the outside in, and be reminded of our intrinsic connection with nature.” Since Meerding is legally blind, these lamps represent his “alternative sensory world.”
