Cracked Log Lamp

Bring the outside in with Tasmanian designer Duncan Meerding's unique Cracked Log Lamp, which won the Green Award for Best Sustainable Design at The Edge 2014.

Inspired by his love of working with wood and attracted to the nuances of light, Duncan turns salvaged logs destined to be burnt into mood-enhancing lamps. He embraces the naturally occurring cracks in the wood by using them as vessels for light.

Says Duncan, "Being legally blind, this vision of light emanating from the peripheries and the highly tactile nature of my work reflect the alternative sensory world in which I design".

Find out more about Duncan's work and love of wood over on the blog.

Each lamp is totally unique featuring various knots, barks and cracks, so will differ from the images shown. The lamps vary in size due to the salvaged nature of the logs but are approximately 23 x 20 x 20 cm. The maximum recommended light bulb is a 12 Watt Compact Fluorescent. They are not currently rated for outdoor use due to the electrics.
