The international design collective Outofstock has just shared with us their latest project – this small, reclaimed-wood table lamp called ‘Boya.’ Produced by the US manufacturer Environment, the design was inspired by the form of marine buoys (hence the name) and it was launched earlier this year during Milan’s Salone del Mobile fair.
More about the design:
‘The reclaimed oak version is made of wood originating from 8 inch x 8 inch hand hewn beams of red and white oak, sourced from the upper mid-west of the USA. Primarily these beams are coming from the structural building framework of large barn and industrial buildings constructed of old growth American oak trees.
‘The wood has mortise and tenon pockets, nails and bolts that have to be removed before the wood can be sorted and selected. The beams also have wood warm holes, checks and natural wood defects such as knots and cracks etc. Some of these imperfections.’
