Edward Linacre [1]‘s Nest Lamp is a beautiful flat-pack pendant light crafted from fast-growing bamboo veneer. The lamp’s interlocking design is inspired by forms found in nature [2], such as the honeycomb structure of beehives.

Measuring 23 inches wide, the Nest Lamp is lightweight, strong and packs flat for easy shipping. It’s made from interlocking [3] pieces of bamboo veneer held together with non-toxic glue. Linacre recently unveiled his Nest Lamp alongside the cutting-edge Australian design collective called the Melbourne Movement [4] at Milan Design Week [5].
