‘A lamp within a log’ is the cool idea behind Marco Stefanelli‘s gorgeous Brecce (Breaches) Collection, which debuted at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair Cascina Cuccagna show. A combination of light, wood and resin, Brecce is all handmade and mixes natural elements with LED technology.
The log lamps come in a variety of sizes and can be used as stools or simply as bookshelf lamps. The process required to realize every log lamp is quite work-intensive, requiring a section of the log to be sliced out and then for a silicone cast of the slice to be made. The light is then set in the cast.
All the components of the lamp are assembled with screws or by locking the parts together. The lamps are sometimes finished with natural wax or with linseed oil.
