This Handmade Modern Light is a nice addition to your recently renovated kitchen. Perfect above a kitchen Island, or to light your dining table, it will impress your guests, and start new conversations. Turn on the light and admire the geometrical patterns cast by the lamp shade! 

 

- Name origin: 

The name “Physalis” refers to a flowering plant also known as “Husk tomato” or “Ground Cherry”. The shape of this light makes allusion to the aesthetic of the fruit of this plant, where the bulb is the fruit and the shade, the dried see-through husk. 

 

- Technical construction: 

The design is based on a structural pattern called Reciprocity. In this case it means that every cherry stick supports two others along its span and is supported on its extremities by the ones it connects with. The result is a light, still strong, geometrical composition with no clear structural hierarchy, as all sticks play the same role keeping the integrity of the structure.  

 

- How we make it: 

This handwoven sphere is made of 90 steam-bent cherrywood sticks. All the sticks are cut, drilled, sanded, varnished, and fastened together with solid brass hardware by Pierre and Coraline in their studio in Toronto. The light socket is inserted in a custom made brass sleeve that connects to the geodesic shade with 3 brass rods.  

 

- Materials: 

Yes this lamp is made of WOOD and BRASS hardware!  

Every model is made with special care for every detail, using high quality materials and components, for a beautiful and very durable piece that will last a lifetime. 

Please be advised that the tone of the wood may vary from the picture. There are not the same two identical pieces of wood. All the magic and beauty of wood is based on this irrefutable principle. The wood is not painted, it is finished with polyurethane, which gives it the semi-gloss, most natural effect. 

 

- Specs: 

Size: 24” diameter sphere  

Socket description: E26 120V 

Environment: Indoor - Dry Location  

UL Listed components (US & Canada) 

 

“Physalis” is a series of two lights, a floor and a pendant, that are both ETL certified. 

 

The “Physalis” lights are the result of a two years research work on reciprocal structure for various projects of different scales. The design is based on a structural pattern called Reciprocity. In this case it means that every cherry stick supports two others along its span and is supported on its extremities by the ones it connects with. The result is a light, still strong, geometrical composition with no clear structural hierarchy, as all sticks play the same role keeping the integrity of the structure.  

This kind of structure matches our design philosophy, minimalist in the use of materials, without unnecessary elements or ornamentation, every single piece of the whole got a structural function.
