The lamp wants to investigate the double life of a lighting equipment: during the day, when the leading actor is a thin sheet of ‘wood’ and during the night, when the suggestion of the light combined with its shadows create the real atmosphere. The wood support and the cuts made on its nature - the veins - discover the identity of the item designing the light. The fluorescent tube-lighting system is the source, while the wood veneering is the soul of a contemporary icon: the lantern.
