Created by Vancouver-based designer Calen Knauf, the Flight Lamp AKA the Laser Lamp is fashioned after the silhouette of the popular toy airplanes made of balsa wood. The exterior and form of the lamp appear like they have nothing in common with airplanes apart from the hood which vaguely resembles a fuselage. But we still think that’s as good a common ground as it gets on lamps inspired from airplanes. To bring the association even closer, however, the designer chose aircraft plywood to make the lamp evoke the same feeling as the toy airplanes do.
Made of 4 wooden dowels, the Flight Lamp was crafted out of plywood that was laser cut to perfection and a long lasting, cool running light fixture from an exit sign. This allows the designer to keep the lamp as eco friendly to produce as possible. The easy to assemble lamp can be put together even by a novice who only knows how to use screws and a few basic tools.
Once assembled, the lamp can be used as a reading light or even a clever tall light depending on the user’s need. The lamp comes flat packed in an 11x17" envelope which saves a lot of useless packing material and makes the lamp uber green as well.
