The award-winning Shanghai-based designer Jamy Yang has combined two of the often-neglected daily material into his design, a table lamp called Sculpture of Skin. As the name suggested, it’s aesthetically poetic and beautiful in form. The shade is made of entangled layers of natural veneer, also known as the skin of tree, which is a sustainable resource that does no harm to the wood. The use of this skin-like material has also brought in soft and flowing light shadow. Moreover, the support is a simple yet flexible metal tube, which is normally a light-weighted constructional material perfectly fit into new contemporary interior design. Sculpture of Skin also has a floor lamp version, which can be seen on the Y-TOWN website.
