The Flock Floor Lamp  is a coiled beauty set in bloom by the hands of dedicated and talented craftsman Tom Raffield . Delicately handcrafted out of steam bent FSC-Certified Sycamore wood, the shade is suspended atop a minimal, solid steel tripod base to create a dramatic and unique floor lamp. If you’re a fan of this innovative design then vote for it in our Bright Ideas Lighting Design Competition !
Tom Raffield uses a steam treatment method  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 .
