“I like to ensure that function, materials, production methods and the finished result are as readable as possible.” After the Baroque floor lamp, which he designed for Ligne Roset in 2015 and which was made from turned wood, Nathan Yong turns again to his favourite material, wood. For indoor/outdoor use, he selected a top quality natural solid teak.
The tops are made from slats, with the corners and legs softly rounded to reinforce the sensuality of the material and its tight, fine grain, conferring a silky touch.
Teak is an exceptional wood, timeless and refined. Used in emblematic locations such as the bridges of the finest boats or Asian temples, it possesses excellent technical characteristics: stable, resistant, soft to touch, pleasantly fragrant. Indoors, it patinates over time to a golden brown colours; outdoors, it oxidates to a silver-grey tone – this alters none of its properties.
