Bird In Hand: a compostable shadow playing light

I designed this large suspended lamp as a tribute to the universal art of hand-shadows; making shadows on the wall using your hands to create birds, rabbits, and other figures. Playing with light and hand shadows is a centuries old past-time, long before electric light was invented. Bird In Hand plays with this concept: all of the hands are positioned to look like a flock of birds, flying out in circles.

The shadows cast on the wall looks like birds. This results in a very expressive, dynamic and striking looking lamp, with layers of humor and poetry hidden in the design. The lamp is made of Ecolotek, a durable, fully compostable material composed of natural hemp-fibers, minerals and binder. It was developed and designed for www.planktonstation.nl.
