The Happy Tree Friend is inspired by the angle poise task light 1933/34

The aesthetic, emotional and intellectual connotations of the classic shape are augmented by application of naturally grown wood to draw a contrast between natural shapes and technical lines within one object.
Metal parts are powder coated. Their colour matching will always be specific to the bark of the tree wood used and will either compliment or contrast its colour.
This light object was created using gathered scrap wood void (in accordance with local forestry commission offices).
The material ages between 12 & 24 months before it will be processed and transformed into a light.

Each piece is equipped with a number plate that shows the geological coordinates of the donator-tree’s location, serial number and date of production.

Materials: steel, wood (e.g. robinia, maple or birch)
