This is one of these most beautiful designs I've seen this year. Miss Maple is a flexible lampshade made from a solid material; wood. Textile designer (and recent graduate of Central Saint Martins with a Masters degree in Future Textile Design) Elisa Strozyk has created something brilliant she calls Wooden Textiles. The material involves deconstructing wood into triangles that are added, by hand, to a textile base, creating a flexible wood fabric.
So brilliant, so beautiful.
The last image shows a detail of Strozyk's Wooden Textiles. Rest assured, this young designer has several swoon-worthy pieces featured on her website.
Want want want.....
