Bold forms, vibrant colours and a wide range of customisation options are the calling cards of this latest range of pendant lamps. Each module is hand turned from seasoned blocks of light weight hale wood (Wrightia Tinctoria) and hand lacquered with vibrant, organically tinted lacquer to a high gloss finish.
The lamps are customisable to four different sizes – minimal, petite, regular & large. Combinations include three kinds of modules- Smooth, Sharp & Bumpy and three kinds of braided power cables- red, black & green. Designer, low energy CFL lighting courtesy Plumen.
The production and application of organic lacquer, in particular, is a laborious and skill-intensive process. Lacquer pucks are made malleable by heat and organic dyes are kneaded in. The tinted lacquer is shaped into 6-inch sticks and allowed to cool and harden. Lacquer application requires the tinted lac to be heated back to a malleable state (achieved by friction). Leaves of the Screw Pine (Pandanus Odoratissimus) plant are used to spread the lac evenly and achieve a high gloss finish.
