Tom Raffield uses a steam treatment method [5] he developed himself to shape wood into breathtaking whorls and curves. The process for creating this LED lamp and other designs is fittingly sustainable: it is low energy, uses no harmful glues, and produces little waste. His other steam bent lighting and furniture designs are available for purchase at his website [3].
