Designed by Françoise Oostwegel, this lamp was inspired by traditional timbered houses and mining lamps seen in the Limburg province in the South of The Netherlands. The main structure is made of wood in an octagonal shape. Inside this wooden structure, copper linings were installed to reflect the light. The result is interesting, a natural-looking lamp outside and modern shiny-looking inside. More description by Françoise Oostwegel:

Zuid Oak Wood Lamp tells the story about the Limburg province in the South of The Netherlands. The characteristics of the Limburg province are brought to life in my lamp like the shape, material and colors. The traditional timbered houses and mining lamps inspired me for the shape of the Zuid Oak Wood Lamp. The octagonal shape gives it a sleek design and is made out of wood.

For the wood I selected a Limburg style type of oak wood. It has a beautiful wood grain and oak trees grow in my hometown – Houthem. The lamp can have multiple functions. The handle enables the user to move it around and create light in places most desired. The basic and natural materials give it a nice and clean look and make this piece very versatile.
