Light Suspension, Burning Ego by Wim Verzantvoort

About

Light Suspension, Burning Ego by Wim Verzantvoort, WDSTCK Studio Dimensions: 100 x 250 x 30 Adjustable height Material: Burned oakwood An observing walk through a forest can leave us feeling free, serene and sheltered at the same time. Trees outlive our lives, symbolize strength and fortitude, and are the epitome of connection with their network of offshoots. Despite their peculiar beauty, offshoots are often discarded after other parts of the tree are manufactured into new forms. By doing so, the dignity of the offshoots is wasted. Stubbornly yet controlled, the branches reach out for sunlight and bring life into a tree. The Burning Ego serves as an ode to the often neglected essence of the bough and its relationship with light and life. The design of the lamp arose from a search for balance between the cultivated and the asymmetric design of Mother Nature. To accentuate the beautiful and muscular forms of the bough, the Shou Sugi Ban technique is applied. This ancient woodworking technique from Japan burns away the soft parts of the wood. By letting the LED follow the original form of the bough and using minimalistic suspension, the Burning Ego floats powerfully through mid-air.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
