This driftwood lamp is made in Aceh, a semi-autonomous Indonesian province on the northwest tip of Sumatra Island. It's known for beaches and diving sites, and of course would have coastlines that offer plenty of driftwood i.e. wood that has been washed ashore by winds, tides and waves.
It can be gathered around rivers and beaches, and recycled for its handsome looks and terrific tactility. Here it is recycled to form a natural base for a table lamp, creating a beautiful contrast with the sleek lines of the lampshade.
This is a lamp that can sit anywhere, where in a minimalist room or a more ornate showroom; it brings light and a reminder of how brilliant nature can be.
