Wood touched by Light Cervantes, regal illumination Cervantes, by the German designer Burkhard Dämmer for LZF, is offered as a wall/ceiling sconce and/or a suspension lamp. This new design, in line with the tradition of latticework, features strips of wood veneer spreading out in all directions, creating a striking concave effect. So what’s the idea behind Burkhard’s new lamp? “… I wanted to imitate the winding effect of ruffs, the neck ornaments used during the baroque period, often seen in old paintings depicting famous people, such as Miguel de Cervantes himself. The exceptional malleability of the wood veneer allows me to mimic the ruff pattern to create a unique diffuser. To complete the prototype, I chose a circular, embossed luminaire shaped as a concave lens, on which the wood veneer strips rest. An LED system is used as a backlight behind the wooden strips, providing a lamp of ever-changing shades”. The lampshades are available in 10 different wood veneer finishes.
