Summumstudio, the well-known product and interior design and branding studio, has designed a new lighting system called Woodstraps for the prestigious lighting company LZF Lamps.
Woodstraps is a modular lighting system that generates layers of light, thanks to its delicate strips of overlapping pressed wood. The handcrafted flexible strips of wood can be adjusted, using straps to open or close them, hence controlling the intensity of the light that is released from the middle of it.
This innovative system, conspicuous for its simple abstract design, is more than just a light: it is an adaptable system whose shape and type of lighting can be customized, depending on the position of the straps that open or close the wood strips. Thanks to its versatile design, it can be suspended or used as a ceiling or wall light.
This combination of wood strips and light of an adjustable intensity helps to ensure a warm welcoming feel, perfect for creating backdrops of differing kinds. Another singularity is the fact that when the light is turned off, Woodstraps acts as a sculpture.
Woodstraps stands out for its delicate, evocative design, with clear-cut lines and simple shapes. It can be used in a multitude of different backdrops, enhancing them with its gentle light. Indeed, it is a prime exponent of contemporary design work based on a perfect blend of craftmanship, ingenuity, light and nature.
Woodstraps is also a handcrafted product, made with sheets of FSC-certified timber (Forest Stewardship Council), guaranteeing the wood’s provenance from responsibly managed forests and its sustainability and eco-friendliness.
About LZF Lamps
LZF Lamps is a Valencia-based lighting company, founded by Maravi Calvo and Sandro Tothill over 20 years ago. Although it started out as a small artisanal design studio, today, it is a well-known international name, thanks to its expertise and the quality of its designs and materials. LZF has been singled out for its high standards by various different bodies, in particular by the Spanish Government’s Ministry for Science and Innovation when it was chosen to receive the National Design Award.
Right from the outset, the company’s lights were designed and made with wood veneer, handcrafting them in a small studio in the old quarter of Valencia. Today, its products continue to be made in the same artisanal style, since the company continues to believe that no other material has the same potential as wood veneer for illuminating living spaces.
