Collaboration with Omer Zimmermann
~ Paris Design Week 2021 ~
Levana is a lighting project born over the 2020-21 lockdowns, and is a collaboration with Omer Zimmermann, a designer and wood artist. Our goal was to develop a light fixture from flexible wood. Employing different manipulations on a simple wood log, we created a wood material that is both hollow and flexible, producing a unique lighting effect.
Over the past year most people in the world spent more time in their home space than in any other space. We identified that there is a need to create diverse atmospheres in the home that will allow for different experiences throughout the day and the month. With a relatively simple method and available materials we were able to produce a complex design and creative light features, inspired by the sun and moon.
Levana is one of the words for the moon in Hebrew, and like the moon appears in different aspects during the month, so the lightning fixture can be hung in different angles. Levana can act as a reminder that while our life within our four walls can seem unchanging and rigid, the world keeps spinning
