Living on my own for the first time meant buying a lot of household items. A couch, a cupboard, a table, you name it. Once everything was in place, something started to gnaw. Something is not right here, but what?
Precisely, that one bulb in the so-called moving fitting made me have light, but no atmosphere. Furniture did not come into their own and everything was equally bright. Annoying light or the lack of it in all kinds of different tasks that I did. That had to change, so I went looking for beautiful lighting.
I visited all kinds of shops (internet was still in the initial phase) and looked at one lamp after the other. They were too big, too small, too much metal, poor finish, too expensive, but most of all, not my taste. Moreover, they all looked alike. What exactly was I looking for, what moved me and what would the lamp have to achieve at that location? Give a lot of light to be able to read or give a wonderful atmosphere to have a pleasant conversation or to enjoy a long meal?
I decided to make a lamp myself, made of wood. A versatile material, durable, always unique in its shape, color and texture, but above all warm and applicable everywhere.
