This unique floor lamp emits a collapsible or retractable spiral concertina effect, creating interesting light patterns for a soft and gentle ambiance in your living room or bedroom. The outer edge of the jackalberry slab has been preserved to create natural, elegant rings of light and patterns. The floor lamp exceeds modern expectations by combining functionality with sculptural art.
The jackalberry varies from a shrub to a large tree with a long straight stem.
WHERE ARE THEY FOUND?
The tree is found throughout Africa and most commonly grows in the savannas.
The wood is hard and heavy with a fine grain, and very suitable for floors, high-quality furniture, cabinets, musical instruments and turnery. The trunks are also used to make canoes.
The wood is characterised by knots and ranges in colour from light reddish-brown to very dark brown – which makes it a lovely wood to create intricate carvings.
