Award-winning lighting designer Tom Raffield‘s new Flux Light was inspired by the flow of the tides and the form of the waves. A central cylinder at the top of the light conceals the bulb, whilst fourteen strips of wood flow out and down to form a shape that is symmetrical, yet embraces the soft wave of contours flowing around the bottom edge of the shade. Hand-crafted in Tom’s woodland workshop, each individual wooden strip is made up of three laminated lengths of wood and held in place at the top by flush-cut oak pegs that form a design feature in themselves. The interior is lined with two strips of ash that turns a beautiful golden color when the light is on, reflecting the light out. The outside is made of classic, sustainably sourced oak, giving a gentle tone whilst allowing glimpses of the lighter wood lining the inside.
