After experimenting with natural wood veneer for many years, Thai product designer and inventor Anurak Suchat has developed the Loop and the Arrow, two origami-like wooden lamps that you can readily fold and unfold to light up rooms and desktops. Each veneer is laminated into three layers, has a 0.48 mm backing and is laser-cut. Tyvek holds all the pieces together. A touch sensor is also attached to the wood for easy activation of on/off modes.
